Josep-Lluís Carod-Rovira, former vice president of the Generalitat of Catalonia, has raised controversy after a statement on TV3 in which he ensures that the "linguistic immersion" of children influence their parents. And is that, in his judgment, The children who face their parents to the point of aggression are Spanish speakers.
During a gathering in the Els matins program on Education and on the relationship between parents and children with problems of aggression on the occasion of the documentary entitled Abusing children, parents with fear, the politician said: "When this issue is over, they could send a copy to the Department of Education and another one to Linguistic Policy, to analyze if there is failure or not in linguistic immersion".
"I say it because all these young people figure that they have been schooled in Catalonia, and therefore, they should be competent in Catalan. And apparently they are not despite having been schooled here, "Carod-Rovira continued.
Some statements that have raised blisters on social networks, where many users have been surprised and against what Rovira said.
