(en) Greece, rocinante: To adapt the schools to the needs of the students and not the students in the schools Not to pass the anti-educational n / s Kerameos [machine translation]

Date Tue, 27 Jul 2021 09:19:33 +0300


An embarrassing moment was recorded in Education once again. After a year of pandemics, thousands of deaths, severe social isolation due to improper and unequal health care and degraded education through e-learning, the government decides to cancel the efforts of 27,000 children, 9,000 more than last year, and not allow them to be admitted in Higher Education. Its general perception is based on the profit of private education, which in order to be strengthened needs more and more students, thus creating class divisions and a mechanism of suffocating control of the personality, dreams, desires and gifts of each child. .The authoritarian measure of the Minimum Admission Base (EBE), which is one of the main obstacles, does not even serve the supposed purpose for which it was created, ie to admit children to departments that "can" finish and the reason is as follows simple: if a student does not make his / her first choice because he / she did not reach the EBE, then he / she will be admitted to a department he / she does not prefer, therefore the chances of not finishing it increase. At the same time, there are the following problems, the special courses of free and linear design, like others, are not taught in the timetable, but in the context of remedial teaching and even at a distance, a preparation for a 6-hour exam. However, EBE jumped from 10, to 13, to 15, and even to 17, scores that obviously require tutoring to be achieved. It becomes clear that those parents who can afford to support their children's admission to Tertiary, these children will be admitted and if they are not admitted due to EBE then they have the financial ability to pay for colleges and buy degrees equal to those of universities, because that's what it's all about. For those children who are excluded because they do not go to "good" tutoring or do not go at all, their hands are tied to a pole with no chance of escape.

And unfortunately the EBE is one of the parts of a dark bill. The core lies in the transformation of the school into a business, in the context of the otherwise auspicious concept of "autonomy". In practice, this means that it seeks to unblock state funding, staffing and training of schools, transferring the responsibility to them to find resources from individuals to support them. These resources will depend on their performance, based on a punitive evaluation. And the question is: How will private schools be funded in poor neighborhoods far from urban centers, which have never been given the tools of "high performance" anyway? They just will not be funded. This is the purpose: to categorize into "good" and "bad" schools, securing students of many speeds and especially securing a future cheap and expendable labor force, which is so much needed by capitalism. In order not to have problems in the implementation of a neoliberal educational planning, the discipline of the teachers is required. Their evaluation has a deep punitive character, without any reinforcement, threatening them with dismissals if they are twice justified as "unsatisfactory", while the directors are still turned into a one-person disciplinary department, which can decide in the absence of the Teachers' Association.

As an education branch of the Rosinande Anarcho-Syndical Initiative, as workers and students, we cannot allow an authoritarian, reactionary and deeply anti-pedagogical bill to be passed, which treats children and workers literally according to its needs. We envision a public school rich in educational materials, staff that protects and enhances learning, in facilities fully equipped with modern technological means, which will not be exam-centric, but will deepen the special needs and talents of each child. That is why we call on the pan-educational rally on Thursday 22/7 at 7 in Propylaia, together with the class educational movement and the struggling students, for a school that will be adapted to their needs.

We claim:

- Immediately withdraw the deeply anti-social and anti-pedagogical bill of Kerameos that turns the school into a business
- Abolish the Minimum Admission Base and the examination-based system of transition to higher levels of education
- Strengthen all educational levels with sole staff, with rich staff will not follow ethnocentric and religious direction, and logistical equipment
- No exclusion of refugees and immigrants, anti-racist and intercultural education now
- Permanence of all deputies. Not to workers without employment rights. Collective labor agreements for all and sundry.
- Joint class struggle of public and private teachers, students, pupils and all employees in education
