La rearrangement of the curriculum for stage 0-6 It has been done with the collaboration of professionals from different fields
El Government of the Generalitat today gave the green light to the Curricular modification in the infant stage, which emphasizes the need for boys and girls can develop a healthy affective-sexual education. In addition, the decree ordering the teachings of early childhood education that has seen the light today also presents education in the 0 to 6-year-old range as a single stage.
The new curriculum claims that boys and girls recognize their sexual and gender identity and for this it indicates that “they should have the opportunity to explore different gender roles through play and their daily lives”, as it appears in the application guide of the new curriculum that the Ministry of Education designed for teachers.
The manual states that the school must ensure that the environment where the boys and girls live “reflects a variety of gender perspectives, beyond socially marked stereotypes” y must contribute to the respectful accompaniment of the identity that each minor is developing.
«autonomy and confidence
The authors of the new curriculum point out what they already pointed out with the implementation of the same model in the most advanced ages: the logic of "Put the boy and the girl at the center of decisions and the development of their capacities and they are recognized as protagonists of their own learning”, they point. In fact, with the Coeduca't program, in force since 2019, these lessons had already been incorporated in the different stages.
La rearrangement of the curriculum for stage 0-6 It has been done "counting on the collaboration of professionals from different fields: experts from various educational entities, universities and active professionals who work with early childhood”. "For the first time, the infant decree presents 0-6 as a unique educational stage, with its own identity and in which the two cycles that comprise it respond to the same educational intention," they claim, highlighting that the decree "adds, unifies and gives coherence to the contributions of the experts and professionals who carry out their activity in this stage”.
For this, the guide establishes that teachers they must provide boys and girls with stories, games and didactic material respectful of equality with the purpose of "make diversity positive in a framework of normalization”.
“It is important that we keep in mind the multiple possibilities we have to raise affective, sexual, gender and family diversity in the school day-to-day” and do it"always in an inclusive, positive and close way”, underlines the manual for teachers.
Prevent sexist violence with affective-sexual education
Parallel to establishing their sexual and gender identity, the guide recommends that minors develop an affective bond with family members and trusted adults.
The spokesperson of the Government, Patricia Plaja, has recalled that "there are studies of the Unesco since 2009 that emphasize the importance of affective-sexual education from early childhood” and has argued that "It helps to identify healthy relationships and those that are not, and also to prevent sexist violence and possible harassment in the future”.
In addition, it has highlighted the need to introduce content on the diversity of families, the fight against gender stereotypes, knowing one's own body or differentiating friendship and love relationships, as well as “know the limits of one's own body and generate confidence to talk with adults and that they can express what they often lack resources for ".
