Friday, February 13, 2009 "Happy Valentine Blarney!" This is one of the slogans read in the Paris demonstration of "non-delivery models." According to one demonstrator, interviewed by Liberation is essential that "the vast majority of universities will not send models by the deadline of 15 February, even those that were in competition and have agreed not to draw in the legs. "in any case it is the disenchantment among academics and Valerie Pecresse. And between secondary teachers and Xavier Darcos. In his speech at RMC during the show "The Big Mouths" he holds false statements that have offended in the teaching world. It says "Today (…) teachers take an exam, contest, they are put in the Training Institute of the masters, where they are taught general educational theories and then from time to time they will replace an absent teacher. that’s not how we train people. that is, they are constantly in front of a flight simulator. While in the proposed system, they will not be in a simulator flight, they will be installed in the cockpit with a copilot and they will enter the career. ". All this is completely false and insulting (see post about this on my blog). This has led to strong reactions from the IUFM and union directors (eg read the statement from NMS). But curiously, this part of about X.Darcos was not taken by the press. These are the blogs and other forums that the broadcast and that led to these strong reactions. Perhaps because these claims Xavier Darcos required a good knowledge of the education system and careful verification? The disenchantment, ultimately, is also the head of state. The remarks made on January 22 about the researchers, as we mentioned in a previous column, qualified today, in the editorial of the World of "gross negligence". What is clear is that the "sales pitch", he goes more … The news of the day is also the high school reform with the concept note posted online by the Pedagogical Cafe where Xavier Darcos invites rectors to consult "widely civil authorities, intellectuals, professionals, opinion leaders" on high school reform. The note also intends to invite unions and high school organizations to participate in the consultation. The bulk of the document concerns the consultation of elected students who will be from March to June It plans workshops on specific issues: orientation, high school life, personalized assistance, fight against failure, equal opportunities, common base, breaking down barriers, autonomy etc. Each meeting will lead to a synthesis. They will be enligne from March on a national site and will lead to a national summary. It also evokes the experiments that are currently under discussion in a number of institutions. The Minister shall direct its presidents nominate ten institutions by academy by March 1. The ministry will hold 100. The document sets out the priorities of these experiments: success rate in the level, reduction of repetition in second, individualized
support, balance and orientation week, preparation for higher education, parents’ association. The criteria are broad enough that many institutions can propose a project. This is not without creating controversy. The SNES, the majority union is against these experiments. It is surprising that these experiments are accompanied by additional means (3 or 4 positions more) when we are in a context of removing 13,500 positions. Incidentally, it can also provide an argument: if the MEN estimated 3 or 4 positions the means for experimentation – in this lean period – that is what it costs this reform! Note also that normally experimentation as provided for in Article 34 of the Fillon law provides that trials come teams and institutional projects. Here is a little contrast. But if the draft permit to eliminate the often issued criticism of "this is not feasible, it can not walk," maybe teams can seize the opportunities for innovation. But here in the specific case, these experiments add confusion in the pilot reform. This point should be clarified and it also assumes that a national framework to be made public and allow to remove ambiguities and to achieve a rigorous evaluation Since this will stop a little during the holidays, we will bind meetings. Take your calendars! On 19 March, seven federations of Education call to stop work and to scroll to the next interprofessional action day. Before that, there will have been the "social summit" at the Elysee Palace on 18 February, with trade union confederations. Note that South UNSA and FSU are not invited … Closer in time, the events are scheduled Thursday, February 19 at the call of the national coordination of universities but joined today by a wide inter.
