of Tuesday, November 10, 2009 High School Reform: J-27 – scholarships but no papers – Colleges and IUT – My diary offered high school reform: J-27 Monday, 9 November stood at the Ministry of Education, a multilateral meeting on high school reform. Until then had held bilateral meetings between each union and the minister’s office. We can read on the websites of different unions (SNES, SE-UNSA have already published reports). We can read the Pedagogical Cafe site, an attempt to synthesize the information that came out of this important meeting. The main information concerns the accompanying 2h that are included in the students’ timetable (we still do not know which is reduced from the existing). Both times are also in the service of teachers. The organization of these two hours would be defined by the school board. For Mr. Chatel, the resources allocated to these hours, but also the class overlap already at work should contribute to increased autonomy, since they will be globalized in an envelope that headteachers will manage according to the project of establishment .. the character "class determination" of the second class is strengthened. A common core, which includes the LV2 is associated two exploration teachings of 1:30 each. New programs will be established for these disciplines as from September 2010 (in fact, they are already ready since last year …). The first class would be undifferentiated with a core representing 60% of the timetable and including the history, geography and new programs. TPE will be maintained with a specific schedule. It is also envisaged new teachings. It is a teaching of scientific methods, literature and issues of the contemporary world, the fundamentals of the economy (which appears at first glance like a war machine against the SES). Tutoring will be offered to students who ask. They will have the same reference (teacher, CPE, …) for 3 years. We also note that there will be a statute for "sit" the school board and that this project is based, as we pointed out, largely on institutional autonomy. Trade union reactions are still scarce. SNES seems worried that autonomy and weakening disciplines. The SE-UNSA (and apparently the NMS) emphasize the possible levers of change from the same school if they seem disappointed by the lack of ambition of the reform. Although more is known, the project is not completed either. The minister has not yet decided, and the minutes made by the unions therefore be taken in moderation. The unions will be received separately from the 17 November to the Ministry to stop details of the reform to be presented to the Higher Education Council on 10 December. What future for the reform after the abandonment of the last year? This will especially consider what are the reactions of teachers and disciplinary associations. The breakdown between core teachings and "exploratory learning" can indeed revive, like last year, the competition between disciplines underlines Luc Cedelle in the supplement "World Education" dated November 11. Each wanting to be both in the core and have preserved their schedules. The students are also an essential variable result of this reform, and there may be a protest upmanship between the student unions. And according to a formula often heard, "the students is like toothpaste, it’s easy to make out but much more difficult to go …" Scholarships but no papers Communications Operation in the Ministry of Immigration and national identity. Students of the two "reception classes" reserved for newcomers poor command of French, Parisian lycee Paul Valery, were guests Monday at Eric Besson. Group photo in the garden, petit fours and speech. The goal was to show that if the Republic expels, she knows how to reward the children of immigrants, provided they are brilliant. Eric Besson took the opportunity to announce the creation this year of 200 student scholarships in the amount of 2,400 euros per year, allocated for up to three years and "rewarding exceptional efforts of integration." Veronique Soule in Liberation says that candidates will be on scholarships based on social criteria and have attended reception classes – proof they go far and are well deserving. They must also picking up the tray with as good or very good, and enrolled in IUT (University Institute of Technology), BTS (Patent of higher technician), or prep class. Those who choose college are excluded … Wearing the badge RESF (Education Without Borders Network), a teacher denounced the contradiction between welcoming all students and expel as soon as they are 18 if they are undocumented. A list of fifteen families was sent to the ministry. As noted by Veronique Soule: why cling to class and try so hard if parents are undocumented … Colleges & IUT Le Monde offers a record of great schools. They will feel neglected while universities have been catching up. They are also criticized because they are blamed their inability to open up to new audiences and their propensity to reproduce elites. Worse, colleges, appear much like a "French exception" while the universities that are standard in the world. The evolved to include a group of universities and colleges for the "critical mass" desirable in the global competition. This is the challenge of the creation of research centers and higher education (PRES), supposed to bring universities, research organizations and schools. In the same paper we find a forum of several IUT presidents who fear for the survival of their institutions. The financial autonomy granted to universities by the LRU law could they think of "endangering" the 115 existing IUT have they said Tuesday at a news conference before being received by Minister Valerie Pecresse. By granting universities autonomy, the LRU of 2007, in fact, ended the "signs" of means and set budgets "globalized" that presidents can manage according to their priorities. The UNPIUT is concerned that "the presidents of the universities want to reduce the IUT to classic status of other UFR." We must preserve the network of IUT and the national diploma that is the DUT because they meet the needs of business "in training of middle and senior technicians, has said the head of this group of university presidents.
