For a week, students have returned to classes, and in a month will start the first class councils. This is a traditionally important moment in which the newsletter is written and future directions are outlined. But with the reform of the high school, the elimination of the sectors and the multiplication of specialties, the class council of the students of the first classes could bring together more than thirty teachers.
With the reform of high school, there may be in some classes 30 to 50 combinations of subjects taught. It is almost impossible for schools to have as many teachers in one room to review the records of each first-year student. The follow-up committee of the high school reform set up by Jean-Michel Blanquer is therefore looking into the subject.
"We sometimes have a vision of the student in his own discipline, and we will discover that this colleague has another look"
But in any case, the traditional school council will have to evolve, what regret Frédérique Rolet general secretary of the SNES, union of the teachers of the second degree. "The teachers are attached because it is the opportunity for a collective assessment, on the class and each student.We sometimes have a vision of the student in his own discipline, and we will discover that such colleague Another look: we risk losing this, "warns the union official.
Three tracks emerge: set up two councils, one around common core subjects, the other around specialties. It is also a question of regrouping the teachers of the common core with a professor who would represent all the specialties. Finally, another possibility: to invent a small council with three teachers in charge of sciences, languages, and humanities. At this point, nothing is decided, says the Ministry of Education, but the idea is that there is no single organizational model.
