(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #287 - Education: 93, another catastrophic back-to-school (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 1 Nov 2018 07:35:14 +0200

Poorest department in France " metropolitan ", the Seine-Saint-Denis is again confronted, as every year, a back to school most worrying: unfilled teaching positions, high schools and colleges overloaded often unhealthy, under-equipped or in full renovation. ---- Once is not custom, the return to school in the 93 is catastrophic. This situation is all the more unacceptable when we know that the State spends half as much for a pupil of the 93 as for a pupil in Paris and that a pupil in Seine-Saint-Denis sees his schooling amputated by one year of age. makes absences of teachers not replaced until third. ---- In addition to this lack means, for this year 2018-2019, 93 schools are facing an increase of nearly 2,000 students in high school.

Faced with this situation, strikes multiply. At the Jacques-Feyder high school in Épinay-sur-Seine, teachers walked out on Thursday, September 20th, to protest against the increase in the number of students in narrow premises in a high school undergoing renovation. Despite the development of additional rooms, the number of classes is always greater than the number of rooms available. In addition to this problem of classrooms, there is a considerable increase of students per class, which can exceed 35 students, particularly in the final year of ES.

This situation is unfortunately not an isolated case. In Sarcelles, Blanc-Mesnil, Montreuil, Nanterre, Aulnay-sous-Bois, the revenues are catastrophic. In Aulnay-sous-Bois, at Jean-Zay High School, teachers went on strike on September 25th to demand an increase in resources proportional to the increase in enrollments.

Social Tri
In four years, pupil numbers increased by 29.5 %, or 343 additional pupils (1169 students in 2014, 1512 in 2018). Of course, the means did not follow. The school climate is increasingly unsustainable and student safety is no longer assured.

In fact, to these problems of premises and means necessary are added alarming violence problems such as high school Paul-Éluard de Saint-Denis where intrusions and aggression near the high school are increasing. This is not surprising when you know that this school has only eight supervisors for 1,900 students.

To this unacceptable situation, we must add the reforms, unfortunately consistent, currently conducted by the Minister of National Education, which will particularly impact the students of Seine-Saint-Denis. With the implementation of Parcoursup, the failure of the public guidance service, the reform of high schools (professional, general and technological) a single logic: a liberal and reactionary school project to strengthen the social sort of school and place students on the job market.
