Reform of the “shock of knowledge”: new “dead college” operations in Yvelines

Concern has not diminished in the middle and high schools of Yvelines since the announcement of the so-called “shock of knowledge” reform by the government last December. Level groups, repeating a year… Measures revealed just a few hours after the catastrophic results of French students in the Pisa tests. After the national demonstration organized on Saturday, new mobilizations are expected this Wednesday morning in Yvelines.

Two parent associations, AAPE and Peep, will organize “dead college” operations in two establishments in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Actions carried out with the support of teachers, and in particular the Snes-FSU union. “It’s an approach that we launched after teachers asked us to support them,” explains Clémentine Langlois, AAPE representative at Debussy. Since we don’t have much of a budget, we’re afraid that this will require us to look elsewhere. Clearly, this threatens the half-groups in language and sciences, the maths group in 3rd grade… With the domino effect the number of students per class could increase. »

Anne, mother of a 4th grade student in another college in Saint-Germain, shows just as much concern. “We don’t take sides for or against the level groups but we already lack the means,” she emphasizes. My son is in 4th grade and if his level of English is satisfactory, it is thanks to these specialized groups where there are between 20 and 25 per class. When there are thirty of them, it will be another story. »

Mobilizations have increased in recent weeks in Yvelines. Houilles, Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, Maurepas, Élancourt, Montigny-le-Bretonneux, Trappes, Limay… Many middle and high schools have been affected by strike movements or “dead college” operations, particularly in the Saint basin. -Quentin-en-Yvelines. Towing operations were also carried out last week by teachers’ unions.

According to the departmental branch of the Snes-FSU union, more than 70 operations have been carried out in middle and high schools in Yvelines since the launch of the general mobilization in February. “Our last big highlight was last Saturday and we are planning other diversified actions between now and mid-June,” we warn Snes-FSU.
