What do you think of compulsory schooling? The population of Neuchâtel is invited to have their say via an online questionnaire. An approach which takes place within the framework of the School Conference launched this winter by the Canton of Neuchâtel.

Anonymously, participants are asked to express their opinions until June 30 on different themes. Digital education, inclusion and even violence at school are discussed. A questionnaire open to all and piloted independently by the University of Fribourg.

However, the method is struggling to convince the public services union which regrets the absence of certain themes, such as the overhaul of cycle 3.

The risk for the SSP of not having addressed certain themes is to see them relegated to the background. The union also fears that the opinions of teachers will be drowned out in the mass of responses and not taken into account enough.

A fear refuted by the University of Friborg which is piloting the questionnaire and will then be responsible for analyzing it. His replacement project manager, Loïc Cériani, explains that each person participating must indicate whether they are, for example, a parent of a student or a teacher. A categorization that will allow the results to be nuanced.

Concerning the choice of themes, Loïc Cériani explains that these were chosen on the basis of a vast form completed this winter at the time of the launch of the Assises de l’École.

For its part, the Autonomous Union of Neuchâtel Teachers regrets not having been approached to define the questions. The SAEN which hoped for a little more from these Conferences. “We felt, among the teachers, a real desire to participate, but ultimately it never really got off the ground and we are afraid that it will never get off the ground,” explains its president, Pierre-Alain Porret. In fact, only two real events are on the program between now and the end of the year. Conference Day, July 4, and a day dedicated to promoting the teaching profession, December 5. “We remain hungry. We need to meet, discuss and exchange views on the future of education,” concludes Pierre-Alain Porret.

As for the questionnaire, its results should be known next winter. /rgi
