There is only one week left to go back to school. But the holidays were not enough to bridge the gap between the Minister of Education and part of the teaching class. Oppositions to Parcoursup, its reform of high school, teachers strikers who have made the retention of notes and copies of Bac ... the end of the year was particularly complicated for the Minister of Education. To appease the spirits, while the site of reforms should continue to expand, Jean-Michel Blanquer could well relax his method.
"We dig the furrow of what has been engaged," says Europe 1 an adviser to the minister. Officially, the message is clear: the course remains the same. But the tone, it is less authoritarian, to believe a person in charge of a trade union of teacher who met it Friday. Statement shared at another union: "The minister realizes that the gap is widening between the ground and the rue de Grenelle".
A follow-up committee for the vat reform
Change of tone, change of method too. The minister receives the unions on Monday. After the showdown around the copies of the tray, the reform of the high school is the explosive issue of this season. On the program: the end of the sectors, new subjects and especially a new baccalaureate. Jean-Michel Blanquer will therefore announce a follow-up committee for this reform.
Another essential file for teachers: the revaluation of wages. Teachers expect this week concrete answers to their demands, knowing that the budget of the National Education has been raised by one billion euros. And the situation is all the more hot for the rue de Grenelle that, for the first time, the collective of "red pens" and trade unions are found for a summer school. Their goal: to develop an action plan if they are not heard. Everywhere they have already filed strike notices ... just in case.
