Spurred by the extreme right and the most conservative sectors, the Government of the Region of Murcia, chaired by Fernando López Miras, asks families for express consent for the participation of their daughters and sons in all the complementary activities carried out in the centers educational, although they are organized by them and are not, in any case, activities that teachers do at their free choice, as they are reflected in their educational programming.
In a press release, the coordinator of IU-Verdes de Cieza, Francisco Saorín, recalls that the 'parental pin' that "indoctrination" of which the rights speak is in the LOMCE and that it is actually against articles of the Royal Decree that the government of Rajoy and Wert imposed and that it is still in force, In this sense it has been specified that it was the PP government that wrote these objectives of the ESO and Baccalaureate (RD 1105/2014): "Responsibly assume their duties, know and exercise their rights in respect for others, practice tolerance, cooperation and solidarity between people and groups, exercise in dialogue strengthening human rights and equal treatment and opportunities between women and men, as common values â€‹â€‹of a plural society ... "
Likewise, Saorín has stressed that "this measure contravenes the Constitution and educational standards, attacks the autonomy of the centers and the freedom of professorship of teachers and teaching staff and, more importantly, contradicts the fundamental and constitutional right of Children and adolescents receive comprehensive training based on the principles and values â€‹â€‹of our democracy, such as equality between men and women, tolerance and respect for diversity, which are not constituted as part of personal morals, but as the ethics that emanates from the community principles that we have been shaping as a democratic society. "
Saorín has declared that from the organization he represents, "we trust the criteria and professionalism of teachers and consider it inadmissible that their exercise be censored. We can not make optional, in school, values â€‹â€‹that in our country are not options since more than forty years. This is undoubtedly the goal that the extreme right pursues with this measure, to impose its morals above the values â€‹â€‹that represent our democratic culture. "
"Our society must be formed in values, values â€‹â€‹that help reduce social inequality, that create civic awareness and contemplate social diversity. The rights of girls and boys do not need authorization since children are not registered in the Registry of Property but in the Civil Registry, to promote censorship in our educational centers, is to go back half a century in our education, as well as to deprive students of the necessary training for their development towards a more just, dignified and egalitarian society. "parental pin" not only disavowes teachers, but also violates the rights of students and endangers social coexistence, "emphasizes the coordinator of IU-Verdes de Cieza.
On the other hand, he recalled that "children are a responsibility, not a property, and it is the State that is obliged to ensure their protection, so that their rights (those of childhood and adolescence) are respected. This distribution of roles obligations (State), responsibilities (parents) and rights (minors) is not the invention of Minister Celaá, neither of the PSOE nor of Podemos. It is, neither more nor less, the result of the legal system on which it is based our entire system of protection for children and adolescents since the 80s ".
In addition, Saorín recalled that the so-called "parental pin" does not obey any social demand, a situation that Tuesday revealed the president of the Region of Murcia in a radio interview in which Fernando López Miras said "I do not know that there is no complaint from parents ... in any center of the Region of Murcia is being indoctrinated, "remarking that" the ideological neutrality of teachers in the Region of Murcia is unquestionable.
