The LOE (Ley Orgánica de Educación) is a Spanish reform of 2006 which established four stages of pre-university education: non-compulsory educación infantil, from birth to six years; compulsory primary education, Primaria, from six to twelve; compulsory secondary education, ESO - Educación Secundaria Obligatoria, from twelve to sixteen; and either two years of Bachillerato, leading to university entrance, or two years of Formación Profesional Específica de Grado Medio, vocational training that can lead to Formación Profesional Específica de Grado Superior. The LOE superseded the LOGSE Ley Orgánica de Ordenación General del Sistema Educativo of 1990. The major change was a reduction in humanities subjects in the curriculum, while citizenship classes Educación para la Ciudadanía were introduced. The latter have been controversial in some quarters.
