Aurec-sur-Loire: after a day without school, parents occupy the public college

In the wake of the teachers’ movement, parents of students at the Gorges de la Loire college in Aurec-sur-Loire have occupied the school since Monday evening. They appear determined.

Reform of the clash of knowledge, job cuts, lack of resources, unreplaced absences: the list of grievances is also long among the families of the Aurec public college. While a “dead school” day concerned classes on Monday, parents and their children took over on Monday from 5 p.m., occupying the site.

Of the 250 students, only four came to college this Monday. Around twenty families had arrived at 6 p.m. “We came with our sleeping bags,” says a mother, showing her sleeping bag folded under her arm.

The anger of the families is palpable and there are many reasons for discontent. “The classes are overcrowded. Instead of adding resources, two positions will be eliminated. We are told that children are the priority, we want to make them elite, and we decide just the opposite. Level groups create already stress among children. Those who are in the strong group will have the pressure to stay there, and those in the weak group will be pigeonholed.

Another parent adds: “We force the children to go to college, 24 to 26 hours a week. And we have three teachers who are absent for a long time. And they are rarely replaced. The State is not doing its job.”
