I used an inadequate term – Time


“I used an inappropriate term.” The Minister of Education and Merit, Giuseppe Valditara, returns to talk about the storm that broke out over the use of the term “humiliation” to refer to students guilty of bullying at school. A fuss arose against the minister’s words and Valditara had to admit that he had used an inappropriate term. At the same time, however, the minister reiterated the meaning of his message that he only wanted to call for responsibility for one’s own actions. Especially in a phase of growth as important and delicate as that of school.

«In the video of the Northern Direction conference in Milan, I used a term that does not explain the meaning of my reasoning at all – clarifies Minister Valditara – I was speaking on an objectively intolerable episode, that of a student who punched a teacher. I said that suspending that boy for a year doesn’t make much sense, much better making him responsible by making him do socially useful work for the school community. In these cases, I was and remain fully convinced that realizing one’s mistake, learning the humility of apologizing, facing the sense of limitation and responsibility for one’s actions, is a step full of educational and cultural significance. Admitting your mistakes means realizing that reality is bigger than your ego. It is an issue whose urgency I feel so urgently, as a person rather than as a minister, that at the moment it has made me use a term that is certainly inappropriate, which I am first and foremost sorry for. Instead, I totally reconfirm the sense of the message: the society of arrogance must respond with the enhancement of the culture of respect and limits and with the rediscovery of the fundamental value of humility”.
