Dear teachers,

could you please explain to me the meaning of this expression in the following excerpt? I wonder if it means "the (hours of) teaching of religion in schools" or "faith-based education".

"In recent weeks thousands of Spanish Catholics have joined church-backed rallies against a new, liberal abortion law, part of the ruling Socialists’ programme of radical change. In other measures, gay marriage has been legalised and religious (in effect, Catholic) education has been downgraded. Rallies in favour of the new abortion law were just as large, though, and a centre-right government would be unlikely to change it. The church can still mobilise, but it cannot impose its will".

Best regards, G.
