Perpignan: a “clash of means” rather than a shock of knowledge, an “unequal” measure

This Saturday morning, at the call of the unions, around thirty people gathered in front of the Pyrénées-Orientales prefecture against the clash of knowledge, a measure considered unequal by teachers and parents.

This Saturday, May 25, 2024, parents, teachers and unions met in front of the Pyrénées-Orientales prefecture in Perpignan, in order to assert their opposition to the clash of knowledge desired by Prime Minister Gabriel Attal.

A reform deemed unequal: “Putting good students in competition with each other is of no interest, but grouping together failing students means taking away all hope of success.”regrets Nadia Alram, departmental secretary of SE-Unsa.

For Fabien, parents of three students, two in middle school and one in primary school, level groups are not the solution, far from it: “The problem is rather the lack of resources in public schools. I have a child with a disability, we fought to have an AESH (accompanying student with a disability ), but this is not the case for all children. Some are not even diagnosed! These level groups will only serve to create divisions between the children. They need to be together. “Being confined in low-level classes, or classes for disabled children, stigmatizes them.”pleads the dad.

If groups must be made, the solution would rather be to make classes of 12 or 15 students, of all levels: “Small groups work. And mixing children together allows teachers to have classes with good students who are more independent, and to really have time to take care of those who have more difficulties. There , if there are classes where there is only that, what will the teachers do? They will not be able to work properly”analyzes Fabien.

For Rémy Landri, president of the Pyrénées-Orientales parents’ federation, “rather than a clash of knowledge, it would be a question of a clash of means, with less overloaded classes”. This reform therefore seems to be unanimously opposed to it: “We will fight until it is removed”warn the unions.
