School: ministry launches summer plan, 510 million package ok
School, Bianchi: "Direction of travel is school in 100% attendance"
04 May 2021 "The pandemic as an external shock has exacerbated diversity and exposed situations that are no longer sustainable, such as the right to education: we have an unsustainable rate of early school leaving. There is an explicit dispersion, of those who cannot reach qualification of study, echi achieves it but does not have the adequate skills. We must start from the summer to make a bridge towards next year using funds already in the ministry, 150 million. Another 320 million will be made available for a structure of support that from the summer will be projected to next year: we will begin to have a more open and interactive school with the territory, as part of a new school phase. Another 40 million we dedicate them to educational poverty "with projects that" address the areas peripheral and marginal:it is an action that must be seen in the logic of a rebalancing. ”Thus the Minister of Education Patrizio Bianchi in a hearing at the Joint Education and Culture Committees of the Senate and Culture of the Chamber on the programmatic lines of his mandate.
"Objective to recover inequalities"
"When I came in March I illustrated the lines with which we presented ourselves to the European comparison to redesign the Recovery and Resilience Plan: we have obtained an important result that has allowed us to expand the resources for the school. a time to recover the main vulnerability of our system: not to give equal opportunities to our children. The recovery of inequalities, dispersion, educational poverty negatively mark our path of growth. The recovery of these points can lead us to overcome the long stagnation in which our country has been for too long ", Bianchi reiterated. "The driving school of the country" of its mandate. "Investing in education means increasing the number of those who are able to participate in the growth of the country.We need to increase the level of productivity and increase the number of those who have the necessary skills to contribute to the development of the country. At this moment, continuous and widespread learning is not enough, but it is necessary to give an 'acceleration'. The country's driving school is not just an obvious declaration but an intervention plan that moves along the lines of people and an axis of the organization, overcoming the 'cage of the twentieth century' ".The country's driving school is not just an obvious declaration but an intervention plan that moves along the lines of people and an axis of the organization, overcoming the 'cage of the twentieth century' ".The country's driving school is not just an obvious declaration but an intervention plan that moves along the lines of people and an axis of the organization, overcoming the 'cage of the twentieth century' ".
"Reasoning on precarious stabilization"
Then the point on precarious workers in the school: "We have the theme of the transitory: how to recover those who have accumulated experience and who need stability: out of almost 500 thousand common places, we have over 200 thousand temporary teachers with different situations: the wrong thing is to treat them all in the same way, they are people with different experiences, titles and experiences. We are reasoning with the Mef to understand how to recognize different titles and merit and allow these people to merge into a stable vision for to start the machine of a regular and continuous hiring ".
"In 10 years there will be 1.4 million fewer students"
Looking to the future, the minister speaks of a radical change that will affect the school. "There is a theme of increasing school time, which is fundamental. The Mef has recognized the staff of the past and has given us something more. In the next 10 years we will have 1 million and 400 thousand fewer children, so we should have many fewer teachers. We need teachers to have smaller classes and increase school time. We have to get out of linear mechanics tot teachers-tot students. We also need more managers. Executives have a fundamental function, we have not given the right weight to the burden of the commitments they have had, must and must be recognized more in the contractual confrontation ". And he explains: "We have to reduce the number of classes,redefine the sizing of institutions and increase school time, in the principle of autonomy. In proportion we need more teachers and more managers ".
"Reform orientation, more options over time"
"We have to do more on orientation, it needs to be reformed: to tie the different cycles and orders more to allow children to make informed choices, but over time. Don't say 'I'm finishing eighth grade and let's see what I do'. These things are getting ready. over time and giving the children a variety of possible options "said the Minister of Education about the programmatic lines of his department." If you finish high school - he explained - you can have a university course; an ITS with equals dignity and strength; a path of experience abroad; an apprenticeship path in which to learn things that are then put to good use; a voluntary path. But they must all be possible options and presented and matured in time. "orientation means not leaving families and children alone in a choice that will then determine their lives ", concluded the minister.
