“We're very clear about the problem: there are many children who have forgotten to carry the authorization of their parents and we cannot exclude them from the activities.” This is the diagnosis of the coming “surprise” of the veto parental (which Vox calls pin for parental) to the schools in murcia Mariola Sanz, president of the association of directors of center Infant and Primary schools of this region. In the school of which she is director —you would prefer that your name not published— there has been no family has been refused for your child to participate in any activity since September, when the Executive murcia launched the veto parental.
“it Seems that no one has brought up the disruption of this measure for the organization of the centers; in the event that a family does not consent, the child must assign another teacher and space”, writes Sanz, which clarifies that the regional Government there has provided them with additional resources for coping with these situations. At her school, has only been organized a follow-up workshop on recycling —must-attend and could be considered—, since I started the course in September.

the association of directors of secondary schools of Murcia, that feature representation of the 60% of the institutes in the region, also do not consists any family case that has been denied permission to participate in activities organized by the centre. “It is a media event that families live differently, do not understand why they have to be supervising what the institute has been considered interesting for the training of their children,” he explains.
The ministry of Education of murcia justified the commissioning of the veto parental “an increasing demand of parents,” and clarified that each centre, “within autonomy, which holds”, that could determine the model of consent to be completed. According to the testimonies of the associations of teachers consulted by this newspaper, the majority of centres used sheets of paper that must be signed by both parents. In some cases, the schools employ mobile applications to make communications and get the permissions.
Oscar Sanchez, a father of two children enrolled in a public school in a district to five miles from the capital of murcia, he has just gotten a request for consent from September for a talk on options of leisure and sports for children were given to parents and mothers of students of the centre. “We found it absurd to have to give the permissions and we complained to the centre, but we were told that they did not want to have problems with the Administration and that they had to adhere to the statement,” he says. In his opinion, the veto is a political struggle that “has crept into the school” to further complicate the bureaucracy of the day-to-day.
there are Also other families that claim not to have received any request for authorization from the education centre. “As every year, we have been informed of all the activities, but we have not been asked to sign for our children to participate,” says Elizabeth Maldonado, who has two children in a public school of the capital of murcia. In what will of course, have participated in a workshop on equality and other emotions.Updated Date: 20 January 2020, 07:00
