The High Court of Justice of Catalonia makes it compulsory for Catalan schools to have 25% of their classes in Spanish


The State Attorney, representing the Spanish Ministry of Education, alleges that the Government of Catalonia is not complying with the regulations regarding the use of Spanish in schools and calls for the use of both languages in equal measure or collaterally with each language being used at least 25% of the time. The High Court of Justice of Catalonia partially accepts appeal of the State Attorney and declares that the Goernment of Catalonia has to adopt the necessary measures so that throughout Catalonia all students receive an education with ‘normal vehicular use’ of the state’s two official languages in the percentages determined, i.e., no less than 25% each. The Government of Catalonia appealed the sentence but the Supreme Court rejects the appeal on November 18, 2021.
