The PP has strongly criticized the statements made on Thursday by the acting Minister of Education, Isabel Celaá, in which he said that "in no way can it be said that the right of parents to choose a religious education or choose an educational center could be part of the freedom of education "emanating from article 27 of the Constitution, statements that have caused controversy and that the minister herself clarified a day later.
However, the Popular Party announced that it will present a parliamentary offensive presenting motions in Congress, Senate, town halls and autonomous communities in defense of educational freedom. The territorial 'barons' of the formation, such as Juanma Moreno, Fernando López Miras, Isabel Díaz Ayuso or Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, reproached the Government of Pedro Sánchez for his "attack" on concerted education.
Pablo Casado himself asked Thursday the head of the acting Executive, Pedro Sánchez, to clarify if he shares the statements of the Minister of Education and asked him if he is the "model of the new radical leftist government" that he wants to close with Podemos.
Casado stressed that freedom of education "is fundamental" in democracy and is guaranteed by the Constitution. "Sanchez must clarify if he agrees with Celaá and if this is the model of the new radical leftist government," he said in a message on his Twitter account, adding that "they talk about freedom, but they cut it off when it doesn't fit his ideology. "
The PP will continue its offensive in this matter against the Government and this Monday Casado will hold a meeting with the counselors of the PP branch at 10 am at the party headquarters and at 5 pm he will meet with concerted education entities. The Vice-Secretary of Social Policy of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, will attend both meetings.
