Should schools in Catalonia use the Catalan language?

The World

In Spain’s northeast region of Catalonia, Spanish is not the primary language, it’s Catalan. Since 1983, public schools there have been taught entirely in Catalan — an effort to reinstate the language after it was banned for 40 years. But that could all change after a recent ruling from Spain’s highest court demanded at least 25% of classes be taught in Spanish. The World’s Lucía Benavides reports this has reignited a decadeslong debate around language in schools.
