The Government of Murcia rebels, like that of Madrid, against the central Executive and will use all legal stratagems so that its students are in contact as little as possible with the Celaá Law curricula. For this, he will give the order that the new textbooks of 5th grade and 1st year of ESO are not changed and they are kept as they were in the Wert Law. In addition, it will leave in the hands of the educational centers the possibility of renewing the school manuals of the other courses.

The Murcian Minister of Education, Mabel Campuzano (ex Vox), clings to the fact that no law requires the use of textbooks. “It is a complementary material,” explain sources from her team. They will use the schedule of her gratuity plan to slow down the substitution. How?

The Law of Free Textbooks in Murcia establishes that “the minimum validity of textbooks will be four school years.” In a later reform, this autonomous norm authorized “exceptionally” that they could be changed before “for duly justified reasons”, such as a curricular modification.

Murcia, however, will interpret this law in the most orthodox way, without exceptions. “To minimize the deficient aspects of the Lomloe, we will use our margin of autonomy and we will not change the books before four years”, say the same sources. This means that, of the 10 courses that compulsory education lasts (Primary and ESO), Lomloe manuals may be used, at the choice of the teachers, only in three: 1st and 3rd of Primary and 3rd of ESO, either because the four-year period has passed and its validity has expired, either because they are not within the free program.

The manuals of 2nd, 4th and 6th of Primary and 2nd and 4th of ESO will not change either, because the Lomloe will not be implemented until 2023/2024 in even courses. And Murcia will maintain the 5th year of Primary and 1st year of ESO as before because “the four-year period of use has not yet passed.” Thus they guarantee seven courses with the usual manuals.

As with all educational laws that are born without consensus -there was also a rebellion of the CCAA of the PSOE with the Wert Law-, its detractors seek different ways not to apply the Lomloe.

The Catholic Confederation of Parents of Students (Concapa) has registered with the Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court a letter that initiates the filing of an appeal against the ESO and Baccalaureate curricula.

The majority group of AMPAS of the concerted school (representing three million parents) was the first to bring the curricula to court, challenging the Primary one a month ago. The arguments of the new resource are the same as then: it considers that there are “elements of indoctrination” and “ideological options” that “contravene the rights of parents regarding the education of their children.”

The Community of Madrid, for its part, once again demanded from the central government a single university entrance exam that is the same throughout Spain. The Minister of Education, Enrique Ossorio, attacked a system that “causes many students from Madrid to be forced to go outside the region to study the career they want, while students from other territories, where the level of demand for exams is much less, they have it easier to enroll in Madrid ».

The so-called single district allows the grade that a student gets in his city to be used to enter the university anywhere in Spain. The leader of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas, is also in favor of this “common” Selectivity because there are “17 Taifa kingdoms” where students “suffer the consequences of differences, discrimination and injustices” between the autonomies.
