The Sectoral Deputy Secretary of the PP, Isabel García Tejerina, has expressed concern about "the deterioration of education" in Spain, since in Andalusia a "child of ten years knows what one of 8 in Castilla y León".
Tejerina said today in TVE Breakfast, when asked about the agreement reached by the groups yesterday in the Congress of Deputies for Philosophy and History of Philosophy to have weight again in Secondary and Baccalaureate.
"I see it well," said popular politics, who has indicated in this context that he is disturbed by the inequalities between the autonomous communities in education.
In Andalusia, he said in this regard, a "ten year old child knows what one of eight in Castilla y León".
On the return of philosophy as a core subject in the academic curriculum of ESO and Bachillerato, Tejerina has revealed that "personally I give importance to philosophy, because I understand an education system that forms and gives capabilities".
The former Minister of Agriculture and Environment has added that at the present time it is important to train children with critical minds.
It has also opted to "prepare for what the market asks for", but taking into account that students must leave school "knowing how to think, and philosophy helps".
