Representatives of parents’ federations supported by teachers’ unions are organizing a new “dead college” day on Friday in this department to protest against the reform of the clash of knowledge announced for the next school year.

“There are around fifteen middle schools and primary schools which should go to dead schools and middle schools. Parents will not send their children to class as a sign of protest,” announces Christine Marchetti Hakani.

A French teacher at Leonardo da Vinci’s college in Bouffémont, Christine Marchetti Hakanin is also secretary of the Force Ouvrière union in Val-d’Oise. It’s been three weeks since its union organization “acts as an interface between teachers and parents” of the department’s colleges and works to mobilize against the reform of knowledge shocks.

Announced at the end of 2023 by the government, this reform provides for the establishment of level groups in French and mathematics from the next school year in 6th and 5th grade, and from 2025 in 4th and 3rd grade.

“We will join the parents of students with signs indicating that we refuse social sorting, saying no to the clash of knowledge and yes to the clash of means. It is unacceptable that the School must return 700 million euros while Furthermore, we give 413 billion for the war. This is our slogan, we refuse to deprive our students and our children of a future. she argues.

Vanessa Hess is a FCPE representative at Léonard de Vinci college in Bouffémont. She hopes that the mobilization of parents on Friday will be as strong as that organized in April.

To Leonardo da Vinci, “93% of children did not come to college”she specifies.“What we would like is for National Education to respond to us on this point: how are you going to do in terms of means to introduce this reform, so that children are not its victims? students will be evaluated, some will find themselves in a low level, but how will they get out of it?” explains Vanessa Hess.

For Christine Marchetti Hakani, this mobilization movement relayed and initiated by representatives of parent federations of the FCPE and the PEEP, but also by non-unionized parents, is “historical”. “What is very special about this mobilization is that it comes from parents and it is local”she specifies.

The “dead colleges” day organized on Friday in Val-d’Oise will be followed by a protest march at the end of the afternoon which will leave from the Aristide Briand college in Domont and will go to the town hall of the town, announce the organizers of this day.

On May 25, the mobilization against the reform of knowledge shocks will take on another dimension. Unions of teachers, high school students and parents’ representatives are calling to take to the streets for a major demonstration in Paris.
