The selection at the entrance of the university, this red line of education policies, was implemented this year not without causing staff and students a level of challenge never reached since the late 2000s. However, the mobilization was neither strong enough nor followed by the first concerned, high school and high school students, to bend a particular government. Review and prospects of a struggle that is not over yet. ---- The selection at the entrance of the university, this red line of education policies, was implemented this year not without causing staff and students a level of challenge never reached since the late 2000s. However, the mobilization was neither strong enough nor followed by the first concerned, high school and high school students, to bend a particular government. Review and prospects of a struggle that is not over yet.

In February, however, the first successful strike days did not result in a major struggle. Without building a frontal opposition to the reform, the high school teachers refused to collaborate. While they were asked to pre-select the work by evaluating the students' orientation wishes, they often gave the most favorable opinions or no opinion at all according to the union instructions.

Universities go on strike
Against all odds, it is late, after March 22, that everything has accelerated. The relative success of the public service strike day and the railway workers served as support. But it is especially the shock caused by the physical attack of the students who occupied that evening an amphitheater of the faculty of law of Montpellier, committed by thugs of far right and endorsed by the dean, which triggers a protest movement in universities. In Toulouse Le Mirail, Paris I, Montpellier, Strasbourg, Lille, Nancy, Nanterre, Bordeaux, Nantes, Rennes, Paris VIII Saint-Denis, Censier, Lyon II ... it is soon thousands of people who take part in the general assemblies and the campuses are busy.

As the exams approach, the repression is violent and the students engage in a hard and courageous partial strike. It is often a majority walkout: GA early test, vote strike, departure students who make copies with the only mention " student-strike ". Miss high school students however: when the reality of social triad operated by Parcoursup explodes in the face on the evening of May 22, day of the first responses to their applications, it is too late, less than a month before the baccalaureate.

And now ?
Have we lost ? Not yet. Throughout the year, the government has trumpeted that all high school graduates would be posted on September 1 st . From now on, its calendar runs until the 21st and will go into the facts well beyond. The start of the academic year will be completely disorganized, the formations of the superior knowing their final numbers only late in the semester. At the same time other measures destroying qualifications, reinforcing social separation, leading to job cuts will be specified: reforms of general, technological and vocational high schools, baccalaureate, bachelor's degree. What will all the students not or badly do ? And new and new terminal students who now know what awaits them? In the universities, the unions of struggle which were implied without hesitation in the strike go out strengthened. This return, it must now prepare.

Counter-balance of Parcoursup
In the meantime, the mobilization work goes through a counter-balance of Parcoursup. Until the end of the school year, the government has published figures on the number of students who have received a proposed assignment. Out of 800 000 applicants, the previous system, Admission post-bac (PDB), gave a response to 80 % of them by 8 June 2017 , and 50 % were then assigned to their first choice. Parcoursup reached the 80 % of students with an answer only at the end of June, at the time of the baccalaureate, and only 40 % have definitely accepted a proposal, that is to say are satisfied - or resigned. The others are without proposal, waiting for an answer that really corresponds to their choice, even left the platform.

On the other hand, the government refuses to give the detailed results by stream of bac, by department, by high school of origin. And for good reason, these would reveal the very important differences which exist according to the school and territorial situation of the pupils, either according to their social origin. That is why the Union Sud-Éducation has embarked on a work of counter-expertise. Since May 22nd, he has been calling teachers and terminale students to inform and update the situation for their class. It thus constituted a database regularly analyzed by trade unionists who put their skills in sociology at the service of the project, and was the only source to provide information on inequality Parcoursup at the national level.

On the eve of the baccalaureate, this database collected the results for 12,000 students. It was observed, for example, that 60 % of candidates enrolled in the vocational sector still had no positive response, and that was also the case for 57 % of those enrolled in the technological sector [1].

The Ore Law is nothing more than a business of excluding the most fragile students, both socially and academically, from access to qualifications that will protect them a minimum in the labor market. For this reason, we will continue to fight it.
