Vocational education in Spain.

Left wing run Spanish communities are considering joining Catalonia and the Canary Islands in banning bullfighting.

At the same time, the right wing government have drawn up plans to introduce bullfighting as an optional subject in the state's vocational schools. The two year course will lead to a certificate in Tauromachy (bullfighting) and Auxiliary Livestock Activities.

The animal rights group, Pacma says that this makes a joke of the educational system. Teaching children how to torture an animal to death is not something that they consider a worthy course of study.
