(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Plan Vidal: always the selection, always no ! by Youth Secretariat (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 7 Nov 2017 08:29:03 +0200

They talked about it, they did it, and are proud of it. On Monday, October 30, the Prime Minister and the Ministers of National Education and Higher Education presented their " student plan ". A plan for entry to higher education, based on a renewal of the post-baccalaureate admission system (APB). ---- While this plan is presented as being favorable to the future of future students, it is actually once again a drastic selection that will be put in place. Prioritizing diplomas, schools, students, etc. Entry into higher education will be, among other things, monitored through the introduction of ", Ie criteria that must be validated by high school students to enter the field of their choice. Obtaining a baccalaureate will no longer be a sufficient criterion to continue your studies. All future students will have to rely on their baccalaureate, French baccalaureate, and all their high school courses, as well as on their (potential) extra-curricular activities. The entrance to the university will be conditioned by the study of the complete school record which puts the high school students in situation of submission to the teachers and the directors.

To read in the monthly Alternative Libertaire of October 2017: Universities: Selection, the red line not to cross

Moreover, while the government asserts that the bachelor's right of access to higher education is guaranteed, it also gives permission to universities, depending on their possibilities of reception, to refuse students. Guaranteed access rights can only be taken seriously if they are accompanied by financing that allows the opening of new classes. Beyond this selection, which reminds us, is in no way linked to " merit ", the plan insists on the follow-up of high school students during their final year. For example, with the integration of two weeks dedicated to orientation or the setting up of two " principal professors " "Accompanying students throughout the year. But these monitoring processes should be accompanied by the hiring of teachers or at least a consideration of the workload that will be required. But this is not the case, this monitoring will therefore be botched by teachers who are exhausted and lacking time. The current APB system has indeed put more than 50 000 students on the tiles in September 2017, but this should not be used as an excuse to set up the selection. Moreover the project of "upgrade" at the entrance to the license is a hypocrisy that hides the selection, but in absolute terms the idea is just to support the access of all high school students. We therefore denounce the hypocrisy of this device and we demand a real opening of higher education to all,

Solidarity student unions [1]and UNEF [2]have already clearly denounced the social decline that this reform represents. It remains now to concretely build, alongside the students and teachers, the balance of power that will compel the government to review its copy, starting by allocating to the universities the budgets necessary for their operation and the reception of all the students. students, without selection !

The case of Higher Education and Research, like that of the Labor Code, stems from the same logic. It requires the same answer, that of the strike and the street. One more reason, therefore, for our students and high school students, to mobilize massively on November 16 alongside the workers against the policy of the Macron government.
