The consulted experts have an unanimous opinion on this subject: basic knowledge related to the usage of Catalan language in the educational system that manages the government of Catalonia must be learnt by students and it is assumed that teachers have a correct command of language, as stated in the Official Rules of the functioning regime of Government Educational Centers for the 2005/2006 academic year .(June 23rd 2005 Resolution).
