Approves a decree defending the “non-applicability of percentage in the teaching and use of languages” one day after the deadline set by the TSJC to end immersion
A day after the expiration of a period set by Catalonia’s Superior Court of Justice (TSJC) to comply with a 25% sentence, the government has approved a decree refusing to establish a minimum quota of subjects in Spanish . Maintaining Catalan as the sole vehicle language obliges schools and their directors to follow the guidelines of the Generalitat and, therefore, continue to enforce linguistic immersion.
The decree – which will come into force in the next 24 hours – promotes the non-application of numerical parameters, proportions or percentages in the teaching and use of languages, that is, it explicitly refuses to comply with the TSJC’s ruling, which generalitat need to take necessary measures. It is necessary to guarantee that all students receive instruction effectively and promptly through the use of common vehicles of two official languages in the prescribed percentage and this in no case shall be less than 25%. ,

If they are not adapted, they will be modified, the government spokesman said, proving that the Catalan government would deprive the centers of any autonomy to enforce the sentence.
In fact, Education Minister Dr. Josep Gonzalez-Cambre, Send specific instructions to the directors on the linguistic governance of Catalan schools this Tuesday. The government says that both these orders, as well as the decree and the law that the PSC agrees to, seek to protect the directors and the ministers take all responsibility for the legality of the maneuvers being carried out to circumvent the punishment. In practice, this tighter control over schools also means a ban on those responsible for schools that want to enforce 25% of Spanish. It should be remembered that the prosecutor’s office warned the directors that they could incur criminal liability if they did not implement the High Court’s decision.
