Like other establishments in Gironde, the André-Lahaye college in Andernos participated on Tuesday May 21 in a “dead college” day at the initiative of a collective of parents, to show its disagreement with the reform of the college “The Shock of Knowledge” and also to oppose the elimination, announced by the rectorate, of three classes at the start of the 2024 school year.

At 10 a.m., according to the demonstrators, 73% of students were absent for this “dead school” day, which parents and teachers are rejoicing, in the hope that they will finally be heard. “We recall that the Shock of Knowledge will have the direct consequences of generating discrimination within classes, restricting educational freedom in mathematics and French, creating strong constraints on the timetables of students and teachers, and destabilizing the 6e », explains Julie Soismier, parent of students. She adds: “the indirect consequences will be increased fatigue for everyone, the disappearance of duplication in many disciplines (sciences, languages, EMC), the difficulty of setting up interdisciplinary projects, among others”.

Concerning the overcrowded classes, consequences of the announced cuts, the hearing which had been requested from Dasen (academic director), as well as the numerous letters sent by families, did not result in any guarantee for the college, according to the collective .

Overstaffed

The rectorate would remain “vigilant” on the situation of the college but nothing has been done, remind the parents… Furthermore, the establishment notes that the forecast numbers for the 2024 school year have increased compared to the figures for January. “If class closures continue as planned, more than half of the classes will have numbers greater than 30, in 4e and 3e including students with disabilities,” adds Julie Soismier. A new day of mobilization at the initiative of parent federations will be held on May 25 in Bordeaux.
