Friday, April 2, 2010 A report that creates debate – School and Nation – States General Security School – Stabilization of RASED? – 4 and a half days – Teacher’s Day – A report that creates debate the report on the implementation of the common core implementation continues to spark debate, and that’s good. Is it not ultimately the role of a parliamentary report to generate public debate and reflection? A condition, however, that reaches beyond caricatures and postures. Not sure we get there well in France in general and in the field of education in particular. Yesterday the papers have focused on the patent issue while the question as we tried to show, was a bit more complex. Jacques Grosperrin, UMP Doubs and author of the report (which will be accessible to all on Tuesday), explains the proposal of the working group in an interview with Liberation "The level of small French late in the third is well below the European average, this is not acceptable. We must therefore change the way of teaching in college, and this requires an overhaul of the patent. ". He added, "Today, lessons are too compartmentalised, we must be more in the cross to restore meaning to the college. This is also what provides the Fillon law of 2005 with the core knowledge and skills. It’s a good law except that it still is not applied, "says Jacques Grosperrin .. Moreover, it is in this sense that the parliamentary report also calls for" dual mode "teachers. as we pointed out in the Nouvel Obs And there are many other proposals in this report. If the patent proposed modification triggers reactions and much caution on the part of the minister, we can assume that this other proposal raises again heated debates, postures and caricatures …. School and Nation Yesterday, Thursday, started in Lyon a research seminar on the school and the Nation. We mentioned yesterday the debate that stirs historians on this issue. The debate continues today in the columns of L’Express with a new interview of Nicolas Offenstadt and another Christopher Chartreux, blog moderator Profencampagne. One like the other critical initiative as "the result will remain, despite everything, oriented as marked with the seal of Sarkozyism and return it to the national. "According Offenstadt. For Carthusians, who also believes that it is a "command", "the biggest failure of the seminar would be to freeze the Nation in an image d’Epinal" while there is matter, according to him, also open the debate on schools and Europe, school and globalization, nation and internationalization, etc. If left think the experts at the seminar without instrumentalize then this work, given the high quality of the speakers (see the report of the Educational Cafe) could lead to the constructive forward-looking and not to use a biased the story. Foundations of school safety: Everything has already been said, everything to play Hardly seminar on the school and the Nation will he finished another event also subject to controversy (and exploitation) will take place. These are the States General of the school safety to be held on 7 and 8 April in the Sorbonne. Compounds again recognized experts, even though we see that this theme may also include political recovery potential. Le Monde asked several teachers to reflect on this question. Starting with Eric Debarbieux President of the Scientific Committee. The title of his column sums up his position. "No simplistic schemes to address a complex phenomenon." He also recalled that "the sociology of violence in schools remains partly a sociology of social exclusion. This is a factor, not an excuse, nor inevitable. . As for endogenous causes, they are also known, and his previous work have shown the "instability of educational teams, reinforced in France by the mode of appointment of secondary teachers, totally deficient training in the simplest gestures educational (classroom management, group dynamics, for example), poor organization of the team alive, internal segregation in institutions "level classes". ". What "" confirms Philippe Meirieu for which solutions are already well known, he summed up by this formula: "Everything has already been said, everything remains to be done," Claude Lelievre, historian of education, sign a forum he made some organizational proposals. For that "it is true States General of safety at school, he would probably have to be written by all concerned of the" list of grievances "and that it lead to a" Copernican revolution "in the treatment of the problem. "That is to say, ask interested themselves. The one and the other, in any case, ensure to be very vigilant about the political use made of this work. The conclusion of Philippe Meirieu sums up the alternative "Expect the worst! A safe display and a display of benevolent platitudes: security gates and pious encouragement to consultation. But we can also expect better: an analysis of the reasons why our general and generous intentions fail to incarnate, a clear look at the lack of political courage of those who have shared power in recent years, and assertion that must be the problem at its root, by rethinking the school to become a place of transmission of knowledge and citizenship training. A beautiful site .. "Stabilization of RASED? Humanity, we can return to the situation of Rased. A meeting was held Wednesday at the Ministry of Education. If unions did not get the return of lost positions he emerged with some assurances about the future of Rased or rather the commitment to a "stabilization" of the device. Under the Ministry of Xavier Darcos, the existence of these networks of teachers specialized in the treatment of learning difficulties was clearly questioned, causing a significant mobilization. Finally, the former minister had had to revise his claims down: only 1,500 jobs were cut on the 3000 initially planned, while 1500 others have been "settled" in struggling schools. A circular dating from last July, came to reaffirm the role of these support networks, which include some 12,800 teachers specializing in rehabilitation, education, and school psychologists. But the situation remains worrying. According to the unions, many school inspectors continue despite the signals of the ministry, locally cut in staffing Rased. Deletions of discrete but real positions plus a drastic reduction in teacher training departures wishing to become specialized teachers. This professional certification requires 400 hours of training. And each year about 250 teachers were applying it. A figure that dropped to fifty in 2009-2010. 4 and a half days the debate on the four-day week is restarted. Opponents of the four-day school week gathered Tuesday in Paris at the headquarters of the FCPE (the first federation of parents) to take stock of ongoing experiments and determination says Liberation. West France contributes to the debate with this information on testing will be conducted by the city of Angers. A school of Angers, the Isoret, will launch in September in the four-day week and a half with the course on Wednesday morning: "The day will be shortened, explains Luc Belot, deputy mayor in charge of education. It will last five hours or quarter past five, instead of six. "Children will then participate in educational activities, free but not compulsory. The experience will last three years. With Brest, Belfort, Grenoble, Lyon … ? Angers participate in scientific monitoring committee led by Francois Testu and Hubert Montagner. Without deciding, Luc Chatel, Minister of Education, last month, "encouraged" schools to the course on Wednesday morning. However, the week of four half days is far from unanimous. In Angers, the debate on school timetables lasted six months. 42% of members of school councils voted to maintain four days. For school timetables affect the organization of receptions extracurricular, cultural activities, sports … Luke Belot, the elected Angevin, sums up the problem: "The school time the pace of the city. "For teachers, it is not party every day … Although the" Teachers’ Day "is real and that the UN proposes to October 5, the" World Day ", the telegram announcing April 1 to establish this event for France was obviously an April Fool. really upgrade teachers, France, April 1 or not, this is a joke … Good Reading … ————————– ——————– Liberation.fr of 02/04/10 (some paid items) Chatel clings to brevet A parliamentary report proposes replacing patent by "exercises and practical situations."

We can define an "expert" as one who knows the difference between what can be ignored and what is really important. The "wise", more prosaically, is that person who, faced with the difficulties of assembling a piece of furniture purchased in supermarkets, may admit to herself that when nothing worked, it’s probably time to read instructions. Regarding aggressive behavior and violence in schools, it is urgent that the expertise and wisdom take their rightful place in the initial and continuing training of teachers. They are stressed and exhausted. It is undeniable that incivility, aggressive behavior make me do my homework
