(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL - Webedito, It also suffers in and around schools ! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 3 May 2020 08:16:28 +0300

In mid-March, the closure of the schools is announced, with accompanying a soothing speech by Blanquer on the digital means implemented by the National Education to allow teachers to ensure "pedagogical continuity". In the days that follow, the few means implemented prove ineffective. School teachers, left to their own devices, turn to alternative solutions in the commercial and / or free sector, all obviously with their own equipment ! Second problem for them, how to reach all the families, how to know which ones have access or not to computer tools, those which are in white zone (eh ! Yes, that exists in certain rural zones of Gironde !), Etc. . ? ---- Again, it is System D that prevails. In order to be able to equip poor families with computer equipment, the teachers of the schools turned to the municipalities or to their personal tools. In Bordeaux for example, the town hall agrees to make tablets, normally used in class, available to non-equipped families ... but asks them to sign an agreement and above all to provide an insurance certificate, which of course is totally impossible for them.

A great suffering before the marginalization of the most disadvantaged ...
As for the content of this "pedagogical continuity", the teachers have gone from a total blank to a daily avalanche of associative proposals, market solicitations and administrative orders, often contradictory moreover.

But the most serious thing in all of this is the complete lack of reflection on what can be asked of children and parents who, it is worth remembering, are not teachers for the vast majority of them ! "Educational continuity In the current situation of confinement has nothing to do with the usual functioning of a class, it is a whole pedagogy to rethink. And it is not in a few days that it can be done, in contrast to this Blanquer bugle. Except to put the teachers of the first degree in a great suffering in front of this setting aside teaching of the pupils who need it most. Once again, it is the most disadvantaged social classes, culturally, financially, geographically including the children who are victims of this school dropout who are suffering the brunt of this epidemic !

Collapse of the public service, strong arrival of the private sector !
Faced with the total collapse of the means of communication offered to teachers, the ministry turned to the private sector as it already knew how to do for digital equipment in rural schools with Microsoft or inputting assessments with Amazon or with IBM for "nursery" stations . There, he found a partner at the top of the liberal economy, SCALEWAY (company belonging to FREE) which uses free software, Jitsi, which it hosts on its servers, to offer videoconferences and virtual classes to teachers. All, obviously, to "be together against the Coronavirus"! A public / private partnership, just like what Macron is preparing for after confinement, both for the public hospital and for National Education ! During confinement, the break in public services continues !

Prospects of struggles !
On April 13, Macron spoke of an end to confinement on May 11 and a gradual re
