President Piñera defends the "duty and right" of parents to educate their children amid a constituent debate

The issue of freedom of education is once again on the table as a result of the decision of the regulation commission of the Convention decided to reject an indication on “freedom of education and the preferential right of parents to educate their children” as a subject to be dealt with by a permanent commission on Fundamental Rights.

In this regard, in an interview with the newspaper La Tercera, this Tuesday the Minister of Education, Raúl Figueroa, pointed out that “by excluding freedom of education, the constituents are giving a worrying signal to the country.”

Along these lines, the Secretary of State explained that, in his opinion, “freedom of education is closely linked to the effective right to education and also to an idea of ​​a diverse and free society and, therefore, when these issues are excluded From the debate, what is affected are not only these specific rights, but also a global view of a society that is to which all Chileans aspire ”.

In this context, during this afternoon, President Sebastián Piñera decided to pronounce on the same matter. Through his Twitter account, the president pointed out that parents have the “duty and right” to educate their children, criticizing that a majority of constituents by not recognizing that right “is seriously weakening the family.”

As President Piñera pointed out, “the State must collaborate in this mission, but never pretend to replace them.”
