Urralburu: "If Martinez Cachá governs based on the opinion of the Family Forum, she is invalidated to be an Education Counselor"

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Spokesman of the Parliamentary Group of Podemos, Óscar Urralburu has reported that from his group is going to ask for the disapproval of the Minister of Education because it is unacceptable that the Ministry of Education becomes a speaker of homophobic and minority sectors of our society.

Urralburu explained that "precisely the educational sphere is one of the pillars where social values, equality, justice, and respect for diversity must be built, which allow our society to advance from an equal and non-discriminatory social consensus".

Inspired by these values, since 2010, volutarios belonging to different LGTBI groups, but in a very particular way to "No te prives", have been exercising a fundamental task in our classrooms, offering talks in which they informed of the importance of respect to sexual diversity and collaborated in the construction of values ​​in equality.

Now, however, Urralburu has affirmed, "Both the PP Government, López Miras, and the Minister of Education, Mrs. Martínez Cachá, have shown their inability to understand reality, giving signs of sectarian behavior, typical of another time, outdated and outdated, when announcing that these informative talks are suspended in educational centers. "

With this decision, "The maximum responsible for regional education, decides to meet the requests of the most ultras sectors, the Forum of the Family, abandoning the values ​​of respect for diversity and the promotion of respect, delivering the political direction to a Forum of the Radical Family If it maintains this position, the same counselor will have become a simple means not a public servant, so it would be invalidated for its function ".

For this reason, Podemos will take to the plenary session of the Regional Assembly, the disapproval of the Minister of Education, Adela Martinéz Cachá.
