The process of reform of the Education Act of the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country, which raised powders and filled many pages of the newspapers for a long time. The law passed last December provoked the anger of many members of the educational community and one of the themes that provoked resentment was linguistic models. Models A, B and D will remain in force in the new law approved, so the school will not be able to euskaldunify the majority non-Basque speaking children in this country.

It is therefore to be assumed that in many villages, registration campaigns in Model D will have to continue, in order to convince the parent who has the right to choose between one model and another, that Model D is the only way for children to learn in Basque, to guarantee that they own two languages, which will be very beneficial for the child, etc. Arguments of 30 years ago grouped into another cellophane. The truth is that it seems a little lazy and worrying.

Concern because models A and B have long been shown to have very poor results, and that model D also has much to improve and not too much. If it is not received at home or half-received and does not teach, how should it develop competition in Basque? If you live in a very Euskaldun town, it is easier (they are the minimums), but the more erdaldun you live in the environment, the harder it will be. The school cannot be euskaldunized by itself, but it is a key piece.

I see more disability than ambition. A great disability we are covering in the name of the new times and in the shadow of reflection processes

In view of all this, I was surprised by the interview by Euskaltzaleen Topagunea to Oskar Zapata and Iñaki Sagardoi in the newspaper Berria, in the issue of 2 May, on the conclusions of the study carried out in Navarra. He was referring to an investigation called increasingly favorable. They underlined the increasing trend against the Basque Country in Navarre and the need to work on defence. The research conclusions talked about the discipline of the bridge, the formation of alliances or the search for a greater consensus, and changes were proposed both in the discourse and in the lines of work to be worked on in practice. Regarding education, they said: “What we basically mention is that we want an integral educational model of quality for Navarra, and for us this necessarily implies going to the universalization of Euskera in the curriculum of students. It should be the right of all citizens to know the Basque language and to pick it up at school. We know, however, that in Navarre we have very different realities today, and before we reach the objective we set, we should promote all the Basque models we have today. Models A, B and D can make a leap in quality. Everyone has their challenges and characteristics, of course, but we believe it is time to give everyone a boost and act with ambition (…)”.

I see more disability than ambition. A great disability that we are covering in the name of new times and in the shadow of reflection processes. The motto used by Estella's ikastola at the Nafarroa Oinez festival, organized in 1990, was that of Ezquin. He could not carry an ambition with him: Let the effort reach the goal that few wait! Today, we call disability ambition, and we don't know where to put the destination.

Large casserole

Unconsciously, the summer solstice comes back. The Sun has reached its peak and heats our hull very well. In many places the rite of fire is celebrated and the Basques also have an ancestral tradition. In the past, the stake of San Juan was made at the ends of the mountains, but... [+]

Hot potato that Urkullu gives to Pradales

The idea of this article emerged when on 24 November lehendakari Urkullu leaked that he would not be a candidate and, consequently, it was found that he would go after twelve years in office without significant gestures with the victims of the State.

However, in order not to be... [+]

Not suitable

In a one-hour commute to the workplace, I am accompanied by the car radio. On yesterday's journey, I had the opportunity to enjoy a short story program, as the last port of the road, full of curves, began in Karrantza. Short legends, yes, of few words, but stories of great... [+]

Asturias-Veleia, 18 years ago

In June 18 years ago we started to get to know the paintings of Iruña Veleia. Good news for the Basques.

But the current situation is not so satisfactory. On the one hand, the Provincial Council of Álava (DFA) says that all graphites are false, and that those who think... [+]

They're also our children.

Parents' mornings are crazy! Wake up the children, give a breakfast, dress up... to get to school on time. These are our day-to-day concerns as parents. At 3,500 kilometres from our country, the responsibilities of the Palestinian parents are very different: whether they are... [+]
