In this article, Xabier Mendiguren reveals how the transmission of the Basque culture isn’t being appropriately and sufficiently taught within the Basque education system. Whereas in a big portion of the extended Basque Country, schools do teach in Basque, the Basque syllabus isn’t being implemented , and the teaching of Basque culture shows notorious failures. No wonder then, a youngster from Gernika ignores who Iparragire the great musician was and the fact that it was him who composed the song Gernikako Arbola. Alarming indeed. Our society is producing a Basque youth who ignore their own culture”.
