Our educational system has the aim, among other, of teaching respect to the fundamental rights and freedom and the promotion of tolerance as part of the democratic principles of coesxistence, as well as fostering peace, cooperation and solidarity among peoples.
In our programme, we take into cosideration interesting proposals to fully develop such capacities, integrating the values of respect, solidarity, peace, coesxistence, equality and tolerance.
Among the specific actions for the treatment of Values Education, we can find ephemerides which complement the direct action in class.
