public authorities are obliged to protect the right to education, enshrined in article 27 of the Spanish Constitution, and the fundamental rights of children and adolescents among which are the right to information, freedom of ideology, freedom of expression, the right to be heard and listened to, and the right of participation, association and assembly. These rights must be exercised progressively in both the middle school and the family because it is in the best interest of the child and his preparation for the exercise of an active citizenship are legal imperatives. The information provided to the minor, on the other hand, must always be “truthful, plural and respectful of the constitutional principles” (organic Law 8/2015 22 July 2015, article 5).

Initiatives such as the ban on school activities, on the part of their guardians, as the so-called “pin parental”, have no place in our educational system. The channel participation of the parents resides in the Ptas (associations of mothers and parents of pupils) who are the key actors and who maintain a permanent dialogue with the teachers and the educational authorities. In schools and institutes, through their school councils and projects of the centers, the educational community comprised of teachers, parents and students, through their representatives, agree to their teaching under the supervision of the Inspection, which is meant to validate it with scientific criteria and legal. The school is a place of coexistence in a community of cooperative learning guarantees to children the right to education, which, in our legal system, it is linked, moreover, with the freedom of chair.
pretending to subtract learning opportunities to their own sons and daughters, or children protected by preventing that are involved in activities that are developed with the rest of their classmates, and that would impose an anomalous exclusion at school, infringes on the rights of the child, parents and guardians, as the teachers are obliged to protect, by legal imperative.
freedom can never be expressed through bans or censorship. This is a no-brainer that today is challenged by those who seek us to focus on the sterile polemics for his void tour legal and that they intend to break the school coexistence and the culture of dialogue and deliberation to impose authoritarianism and blind and uncritical. In the face of all common sense, call it freedom to practice the annihilate. And even offer titles of property of the minor to deny his condition of subject of law. His commitment to democracy as well as its adherence to constitutional principles are, in all likelihood, non-existent.
As responsible in our autonomous communities to protect and guarantee the right to education of minors and their fundamental rights as enshrined in the Constitution and in other laws, we conclude that bans and censorship are absolutely incompatible with the promotion of the development of autonomy and independence of judgment of the lower that is the mission of education. Is built well, with solid foundations, the future exercise of citizenship in a constitutional democracy. In Spain we educate in freedom and for freedom.
