On Monday morning, after the new Minister for Education, Nuria Riera, had opened talks with the education sectors, the future was looking encouraging.

Palma.—Come the end of Monday, the Minister had met the unions,  representatives for secondary school principals in the Balearics and made some head way, she had done all she could to have closed the gap which the controversial TILtrilingual curriculum had blown open between the government and the education sector.
However, during yesterday’s parliamentary session, Riera’s first since taking over education, the President of the Balearics, Jose Ramon Bauza, made it clear that he is not prepared to give any ground.
Despite the Balearic High Court having ruled that TIL is”invalid” and shoud be “suspended”, Bauza said that he has no intention of obeying the ruling and said that, until the Supreme Court in Madrid, rules on the Balearic government’s appeal against the Palma ruling “we shall continue defending  TIL and trilingual teaching.”
