May 15 to 21, 2017 – Blanquer – Speech & method – Training – school elsewhere – Butinages -. A new minister not raise bad reactions even before it starts. But also, presidential announcements before his appointment. Conflicting signals to the world of education … These are the main points of this notebook. But we also talk about training (initial and ongoing) and what happens elsewhere in the world. Jean-Michel Blanquer, new minister After 993 days at the helm of the Ministry of Education for Higher Education and Research, Najat Vallaud Belkacem has given way to the new Minister of Education May 17, 2017 . Jean-Michel Blanquer is not unknown in the world of education. He already has a major course and a past Deputy Chief of Staff, President (twice), DGESCO … All newspapers dedicate almost a portrait with obviously an analysis of the main challenges of his ministry: Les Echos which qualify of "homing", Le Parisien defines it as an "experimenter". Express speaks of it as a "pragmatic without taboos." Louise Tourret on recalls that the teachers do not have an a priori very positive towards it. In The World as for Liberation and Le Figaro, especially one retains it "just right." In La Croix, even we note that it was reputed to be close to Alain Juppe. An article in the Lab Europe1 also tells us that this childhood friend Baroin could have been Minister of Education if … Nicolas Sarkozy won the presidential election. The point took the opportunity to put forward the chronicles he held in this magazine. We can also read a vitriolic portrait penned by Francois Jarraud the Pedagogical Cafe where he said that man also has a passive stating that "from 2009 to 2012, Jean-Michel Blanquer is number two education national. As such, it implements policies that the school is still remembered. It is he who organizes the 80,000 job cuts of teachers. They are aimed primarily schooling before 3 years, collapses, eliminating Rased and teacher training. ". I also devoted a column on the Economic Alternatives site new minister, I have called "a minister of education on, but in what sense?" Because the question is that of knowing, beyond person, what will be the work of Jean-Michel Blanquer in this ministry he knows well. In my text, I recall his book The School of Tomorrow, a renovated Proposals for Education (Odile Jacob, 2016) like a cover letter or at least assumed a departmental program. You could find links with the education program Emmanuel Macron and the work of the Institute Montaigne. It is a program based on a few key words: autonomy, fundamental, neuro-science, innovation, simplification, evaluation. Maria Carolina Missir on his blog had a fairly complete presentation of this book and predicted a future minister to its author. He also gave several interviews on the occasion of its release. This is the case in L’Express, where he insists on "school autonomy, compulsory reform" or Point (interviewed by JP Brighelli) Since his appointment, he was not stingy either interviews and statements. Beginning with his inauguration speech (following that Najat Vallaud Belkacem is also listening) "There will not be yet another law or an umpteenth reform. There will be just the desire to focus on the real problems "by giving" freedom to the actors and to our teachers, principals and all the stakeholders of Education, "said t- he told reporters after the handover. He said repeatedly emphasize "a pragmatic approach" keep "what works" and "move on" when devices "do not go." He was also the guest of the morning of France Inter. He also gave an interview to Le Monde. In this interview, he explains how Mr Macron’s commitments will materialize, some as early as September. He says the twelve classes of students in the priority education zones (ZEP) will be in place in September, but not necessarily remove the device "more masters classes." To the rhythms, he proposed " launch local consultations and experiments – on a voluntary basis – so that each municipality can find, with schools, parents, what seems the best organization of the week "on the reform of college, s. it welcomes the move towards autonomy, he deplores "the removal, vertically, devices that worked well, like bilangues classes, European sections, the Latin option" and restore the account. it adds that "interdisciplinarity is very interesting, but must come from the players in the field. It will not be decreed. This is why we will give more freedom to the teachers." in Intervi ew France Inter, he also mentions the teaching of history and announce that enhance chronological dimension. "The question of love of our country is absolutely fundamental, it is the basis of everything. What strikes me is that in France the question of love of country seen as secondary. " This is why he defends the teaching of "a chronological narrative" that allows "to identify." "It seems to be obvious," he said. He also said the micro France Inter have often "suffered" that "distorts" his word. And he thinks that this caricature in the right man. This term beginning is also marked by a small profile case that made the buzz this weekend. "Secretly, sulphurous SOS Education clears all ties with the new Minister of Education" as Inrocks. Two interviews dating a few months, that of the Minister and not the one who has been named director of the Christopher Kerrero firm has curiously disappeared from the site of the ultra-conservative association. John Paul Mongin Managing Director of SOS Education, which issued a right of reply is interviewed by Le Figaro in which he says: "I have not received any instructions from them. I decided myself to erase these texts, fearing conservative and sometimes rightist SOS Education will cause harm to label these two men when, for example, they would have to negotiate with teacher unions " , he explains, fearing "recurring caricatures" about his association. "When I asked Jean-Michel and Christophe Blanquer Kerrero they were neither minister nor cabinet director … In addition, we can assume they are expressed differently depending on the media they are addressing. But if I had to do, given the buzz, I will keep these interviews "he continues. For now, Ch. Kerrero is the only known member of the cabinet. We can read in the Point in July 2016, an interview (by JP Brighelli) where he rather spoke against the "skills" and challenges the common ground as it exists. We also learn that Jean-Michel Blanquer contributed (video) to Esperance conference Suburbs and also participated in the symposium organized by the School Common Sense. If we add its recurring diatribes against "pedagogism" as in his last column of the point, and even if we want to keep any trial of intent and a priori judgment, there will be some work to convince much teachers and especially the favorable evolution of the education system … the speech and the method even before the appointment of the Government, the President had already given guidance on education. Thus, during his first trip to Berlin, Monday, May 15, Emmanuel Macron announced: "I have decided to restore bilangues classes. From September, the bilangues reopen classes in France, "remarks included in a shared tweet. Restore? The term is somewhat excessive since only a third of these classes had been deleted. In Paris, they were all maintained. But the idea of ??a "restoration" is not there by chance. The word is here to please a section of public opinion. But beware of the perverse effects because such a message can also turn against the reformist will expressed by the new President. In fact one can also interpret this announcement as confirmation that if teachers are protesting the reforms can be deleted. L’Observateur, as Liberation this ad would be "of dressing" (or Perlimpinpin?). For, say several experts of the subject, there is no restoration of these classes in the sense that there is no dedicated funding. Rather, it is an expansion of the autonomy of colleges. The bilangues route (re) will be part of own teaching methods to each institution and compete with other devices within the margin of autonomy …. Before the appointment of JM Blanquer it was also a great deal about the desire to reduce the classes of CP and CE1 to twelve students in the priority education networks. It seemed acquired it would be detrimental to the device "Over masters classes." This has led many protests including an online petition As noted in an article in L’Express, Jean-Michel Blanquer is familiar with this proposal, present in 2010 in a report by the Institut Montaigne, circle Liberal thinking which was attended Emmanuel Macron and … Jean-Michel Blanquer. The Minister has indeed developed its final programmatic essay on the school with the help of the institute. But the same article also adds, not without malice, that when in 2010, Bigorgne Lawrence, director of the Institute Montaigne, presented its report to a committee of the National Assembly. He concluded his speech with the words, "Split classes without teacher training in the treatment of high difficulty is water sand!". That proposals for Emmanuel Macron for education were thoughts and rely on the work of the research is undeniable. This is essentially what the researcher said Asma Benhenda (Economics School of Paris) in an article for The Conversation. There’s even some proposals (like 12 students CP) in the PS program for legislative told Le Monde It is rather the method that is disputed. "No to the eternal return" is what Denis Paget said in an article published on the website of Pedagogical Notebooks. The former trade unionist and member of the Board of the program states: "It has accustomed us to see the reforms of the new Minister hunt earlier who had just come into force, and without any evaluation of the previous device could be implemented. This way to drive educational policy discredits any notion of reform and prevents debate and ownership in number of teachers. As the change of government again expose the school to a burst questioned, warn against the temptation of more or less strong retouching disfiguring, discourage, dodge the basics and reinforce the camp of skeptics eternal . ". It is also said that Andre Giordan on Educavox: "Nothing is worse than the series of" reforms "installed injunction by taking the foot-cons of the foregoing. Teachers need to constantly keep evolving. The continuity of action is absolutely necessary in Education. In other teachers will wait again the next Minister! Education time is not the policy. It is not about deconstructing what has been done before but to rely on it to evaluate and improve it. ". We find about enough neighbors in an article published on my blog the night of the presidential election. Overall, "The school world is alarmed projects Emmanuel Macron" says Le Monde. Whether the challenge to reform rhythms, the removal of the device "more masters than classes" or even to reform the college, concern is especially in the absence of monitoring and uncertainty means, but also in the method used. Unions are Emmanuel Macron, going too fast and takes little account of the existing one. The concern for continuity is also found in the open letter that the President of the CIPF to the President of the Republic. She is most concerned about the questioning of school time. And more generally, it believes that "we must get out of the yoyo deadly policy," which education is to systematically "unravel what did the predecessor. ". We find the same thing in a joint letter addressed to the President by Sgen CFDT union, CFDT-VET CIPF, UNSA-Education Associations and school partners. This call seeks to continue the school’s transformation and an ambitious education policy "in the sense of improved achievement for all students, a reduction of inequalities, of taking into account the specific needs of each and every one, a struggle against the social or cultural determinism. ". Method question. Avoid powder Perlimpinpin and walking … forced Training aftermath of the presidential election and appointment of the Minister obviously make up the bulk of educational news but other subjects somehow manage to exist. This is the case of the theme of teacher training. The World has a feature to the training of teachers. With a weak first observation: it is on average 3.5 days of training per year per teacher in France, against an average of eight days a year to their colleagues in other OECD countries. For four years the reports (OECD, ECA, National Assembly, etc.) pointing to the issue of revitalization of teacher training and are very similar. It contains several times the same conclusion: busy back on track initial teacher training almost eliminated by the right, the outgoing majority, mobilized by the creation in 2013 of high schools of the teaching and education (ESPE) did not advance to the site of their training throughout life. The other problem is that this training is too often perceived and seen as "top-down", that is to say intended to transmit the education reforms. Yet continuing education can be better than that. Another article of the World described a continuing education course on differentiated instruction. And it shows the interest of the exchange and pooling, ie training more continuous "horizontal". I interviewed in this article. I remember one of Cnire the proposals to include in the missions of homework market
teachers this training requirement in the form of credit hours to spend as they see fit, over several years. He is the five-year period that opens difference? In a letter to teachers dated April 19, Emmanuel Macron promised that under his presidency every teacher, "the first degree as the second degree, will receive three days of training each year." We can also mention the initial training of teachers. First, as we noted the VousNousIls with the April 2017 issue of the International Journal of Sevres education published by the ICRP (International Center for Pedagogical Studies) is interested in beginning teachers – defined as having less than three months experience: "Who are these new teachers now, how are they trained and they in a trade, what is their insertion in the school or in the institution? ". The book draws particular attention to "a phenomenon of professional stall, in connection with the material and symbolic conditions of exercise of the profession." According to the UNSA Education barometer 2017, only 27.6% of teachers would recommend their profession to young people around them. It is also to be linked with a document from the Ministry of Education, revealed by EducPros. This report of a doubling trainees layoffs between 2013 and 2016 and an increase of resignations. Figures that question again on the selectivity of the competition and the training of teachers. "The increases in layoffs and resignations match failures. This means either that the training has failed to lead students to the level required by the employer or the job is not done for them, "said Jacques Ginestie director ESPE Marseille and president of the National Network of Espe. It is certainly put into perspective, as I did in an article a few months ago when the first numbers were published. But we must also take into account this reality. In this respect, the strike of trainee teachers from Grenoble is indicative of the difficulties of hope and the general architecture of the initial training. They criticize, jumble, overwork and infantilism, inadequate training. Called "ESPE rancid", the movement is not extended even if he has found echo also in Paris. Improving training, initial and continuing risks being a folder on the desktop soon the new minister. The school also Let’s get out of our beautiful country to look elsewhere. Although it is not always rejoicing … Singapore is one of the best educational systems in the world by international surveys (politically is much more debatable …). Yet, the government announced a plan to restructure the Singapore education system. With a main goal: to feed the pleasure of learning so that children like to go to school. The leaders set out two principles: it does not change that when we hopefully will not change is regress. Several measures are in line with a shift to the right of education in Japan told us we told Le Monde. The symbolic is the reintroduction of the "jukendo" technical combat with bayonets developed by the Imperial Army. Associated militarism years 1930-1940, returning in schools is controversial. Especially since the government has also reintroduced into the curriculum the study of the "Rescript on Education", 1890 document by which the Emperor Meiji (1852-1912) called his subjects to "sacrifice to State if circumstances require. " In Poland, the Law and Justice party has initiated a reform of education. Promulgated in January, without any consultation, the law on the reform of Education will be implemented in September. It unravels a system introduced in 1999, which has yet placed Poland among the best students in international rankings Pisa. Among the measures announced: the end of college, there would be a long primary school 8 years before the transition to high school. A major reform that would do the cleaning in both programs in the faculty. Besides the big mess announced a reform prepared in haste – how to distribute facilities, laboratories – 30,000 teachers could indeed be unemployed or do not have sufficient number of hours to a living wage. But they are also the contents that are changed. "They want to remove the theory of evolution in biology class, says the expert Piotr Podemski questioned by the forum Geneva And the sex education courses are supervised by a woman who thinks that all contraception is harmful because women need sperm! History lessons are rewritten from a nationalist point of view, completely closed on ourselves. "" The programs were developed too quickly, he added. Finally, we do not even know who wrote them. In class, children will no longer be encouraged to ask questions, to think. The government wants to forge a new figure of the Polish, loyal and proud of his country. "Butinages Some links to readings (or emissions) interesting to complement this already loaded notebook. Let’s start with a report on France 3 of a primary school in Trappes. It is shown there in three minutes a cooperative learning, caring and empathy-based and emotional management. Mediation It speaks peer nonviolent communication, "emotions chair" and school climate. And therefore what really makes learning. We can read in an interview with La Croix Cedric Villani (also included on the Tribune). It answers questions about the place of mathematics in society and their strategic role in future technological changes. One of his answers echoed one of our previous topics. "France is a country of paradoxes … In education, we find one of the largest gaps of any OECD, with a huge gap between those who are doing better and those who suffer most . Our worst scores PISA are certainly due to the teaching world unease, torn between multiple counter bell sounds, facing an extremely frustrating managing human resources, and seduction totally legitimate industry, at a time when the mathematics teachers can seize amount of opportunities in the industry more profitable and less complicated. This will be a big job for the whole society to take things in hand. "The following link could also be part of the previous sections. In an article in Le Monde, the sociologist Pierre Merle approves the reduction of class sizes provided in the educational program of the President, but considers dangerous institutional autonomy because it will increase inequality. The end of the text track quite well the roadmap of the next five years: "The new president has only a five-year period to convince, to build a vital inclusive school to professional integration of each, to roll back" the refusal the other "who has had the preference of 10.5 million voters May 7 2017.En failure, in 2022, a majority of voters may prefer the discourse of hatred and revenge lack of a sufficiently friendly school and promising future for every citizen. A caring society, confident in itself and where everyone has a chance never emerge from a French school divided, ghettoized, the one where the social background of a student is, of all European educational systems, the most decisive his academic career. This inequality of educational achievement by the accidents of birth is the opposite of a republican school worthy of the name. The new president promised audacity. He needs to prove himself to break with the past, actually promote school for all "Good Read This … Philippe Watrelot (head) work is licensed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License – No use. commercial – Sharing in the Same Conditions 3.0 France.
