The University of Alicante on behalf of public education
Alicante, 24th February 2012
The University of Alicante wants to show their support for the demonstrations organized by students, teachers and social agents in defense of public education. Resources devoted to education are not an expense but an investment in the future, so that public authorities should provide the financial means so that Public Education takes place in optimal conditions.
Given the legitimate demand for quality public education, the University President with his governing board wants to show that the actions of the security forces should never be excessive because, if so, this can lead to the radicalization of the conflict. Public authorities should always bear in mind that dialogue is the best mechanism for resolving conflicts with the citizenship.
