«An Italian teacher has been suspended over a video made by her students that compared a security law drafted by Italy’s far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini, to Mussolini’s racial laws, provoking a storm of protest against her suspension across the country. Rosa Maria Dell’Aria was last week suspended for 15 days on half pay after an investigation by the education ministry’s provincial authority in Palermo found she had not “supervised” her students’ work. […] The students, aged 15 to 16, compared the fascist-era racial laws introduced in Italy by Benito Mussolini to Salvini’s security decree, approved by parliament the previous month. The law left hundreds of asylum seekers in legal limbo by removing humanitarian protection for those not eligible for refugee status. […] Dell’Aria’s students have written to the regional education authority expressing their support. “She was always impartial and it was us who came up with the comparison,” the letter wrote. “The images in the PowerPoint presentation were not chosen by the teacher, who only gave us a hand in fixing the text from a linguistic standpoint.”». La sospensione con stipendio dimezzato della docente di Palermo, colpevole di non aver vigilato sul lavoro dei suoi studenti, è arrivata fin sulle pagine del Guardian. Secondo Tomaso Montanari e Francesco Pallante, la vicenda «chiama in causa fondamentali princìpi costituzionali, quali la libertà di insegnamento (art. 33), il diritto all’istruzione (art. 34), la libertà di manifestazione del pensiero (art. 21)». Di seguito pubblichiamo i link agli articoli del Guardian e di Montanari e Pallante, come pure il video integrale all’origine del provvedimento disciplinare.
