  • The Government of Juanma Moreno will approve the Andalusia Digital Law, which will allow families to be offered a cyber shield to protect children and adolescents’ access to the Internet

The President of the Andalusian Government, Juanma Moreno, announced during the general policy debate on Andalusia in Parliament the approval of a Law on Digital Andalusia that This will allow families to have a “cyber shield” that protects children and adolescents’ access to the Internet which will be added to the already existing restrictions on the use of mobile phones and other devices in educational centres, except for justified educational use.

In his speech, Moreno stressed the importance of giving “top priority” to protect against the risks of new technologies because “experts warn us of the brutal effects that access via the Internet to violence, pornography, gambling or suicidal behavior has on the health and development of minors.”

This initiative was created to detect and analyse risks and threats in all aspects that may affect the safety, health, development and privacy of minors. This filter or ‘cyber shield’, in the form of a free application for parents, will be a guarantee to prevent minors from accessing adult content.

The president devoted a large section to education in which he also announced the launch in 2025 of a Teacher Support Unit with the aim of offering psychological and legal support to teachers.

The Andalusian Government is committed to continuing “Taking care of public education by consolidating the largest, most stable and best-conditioned workforce in the history of Andalusia“For this purpose, 7,000 vacancies for primary and secondary school teachers will be announced in 2025, in addition to the third salary increase that more than 125,000 teachers and professors will receive in September, agreed with trade unions and employers’ organisations.

He also highlighted that Andalusia has consolidated an early school leaving rate below 17% and the graduation rate has increased by nine points, placing Andalusia at the head of Spain in indicators such as the school enrolment rate for students aged 0 to 3 years of 56%, “almost 10 points higher than the national average” or the “most extensive family aid programme in Spain”, with nearly 900 million euros benefiting more than one million students.

Along the same lines, he valued The “enormous transformation” that special education has experienced“with 67% more investment than in 2018 and the largest diversity care staff, more than 10,700 specialist professionals”, and the offer of 168,000 Vocational Training places next year in dual modality, but “despite the fact that we do not have the financing of the Government of Pedro Sánchez”.
