last Friday, at the time that the ministers of Elizabeth Celaá, Education, and Irene Montero, Equality, announced at a press conference that the Government would veto parental murcia, the secretary of State for Education, Alejandro Tiana, had the requirement to which this newspaper has had access. In the text, only five pages, the Executive of the PSOE and United we Can states that the veto parenting is “a sort of conscientious objection is not provided for in the law, which is only enabled to the effect.”
August 29, 2019, the Government of Murcia is formed by the PP and Citizens with the support of Vox— issued instructions that require the centres of their region to inform about the complementary activities that are going to organize, the content, the duration, and people who are going to teach. And requires schools and colleges that they may convey it to the parents to give their approval or not. For the Government, there are instructions that exceed its radius of action, “purporting to produce legal effects beyond the scope autoorganizativo internal and that have not been object of publication in an official journal”.
In the opinion of the Government, and these instructions will go against the Organic Law of Education (2006), that establishes that the centers need to collect in its educational project, the curriculum, its internal rules and its functioning. That is to say, that “they are teachers, in the framework of the pedagogic autonomy of the centres, those who have the authority to design the complementary activities that they deem necessary to comply with the established curriculum”.

For the Government, the veto parental violates the students ' right to education —as spelled out in the Constitution— and, when this looks for the “development of the human personality in respect for the democratic principles of coexistence and fundamental rights and freedoms”. The Executive argues that in the face of this right to an education, is “a right accessory that assists the parents that their children receive the religious and moral formation that is in accord with their own convictions”.
The Government recalls in its requirement that the law itself probably supports seamless these complementary activities. In the curriculum of the elementary school, published in its official gazette in September 2014 —when ruled by the Popular Party alone in Murcia—, it is stated that these activities "will be assessable for the purposes of academic and mandatory, both for teachers as for students. However, they shall have a voluntary character for the students those which are carried out outside the centre, or those who require economic contributions of the families, in which case they shall be guaranteed the educational attention of students who do not participate in the same". In September 2015, was published the curriculum and THAT with the same conditions: these classes are assessable and compulsory.
The request is closed, asking the Government of Murcia to amend its statement of veto parental to "conform to the basic law state and its autonomous regulation". The minister Celaá, in a press conference held this Monday in Llodio (Alava), has announced that gives a month to the Government of murcia to "restore legality" before having recourse in the courts. The requirement introduced on Friday, however, it does not require any specific term.Updated Date: 20 January 2020, 15:00
