Blocked secondary schools, protests, this Tuesday the educational unions are calling for a new day of strike on wages and against “knowledge shock” reforms.
As last Thursday, Snes-FSU, the main union in middle and high schools, CGT Educ'action and Sud Education are calling for a strike in institutions this Tuesday, February 6, “to defend public schools, wages and against shock knowledge”.
In Marseille, the gathering is planned at 11 a.m., near Réformés, on top of Canebière. Several institutions will be blocked at the request of the National High School Movement (MNL), which joins forces with the teachers' movement, especially in high schools of Saint-Charles and Thiers.
The high school parade will also be at the teachers' assembly at 11 a.m. for the reformers.
Last week, the movement mobilized one in five teachers, according to figures from the Ministry of National Education. Protests were held in Marseille, Avignon, Gap, Briançon and Digne-les-Bains.
Faced with repeated controversies since her appointment, the Minister of Education and Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, whose maintenance
uncertain in the context of the upcoming reconstruction, he must face this new strike when he will be heard in the State Assembly in the afternoon.
The trade unions have in mind the application for the next school year
the “knowledge shock” reforms announced by Gabriel Attal when he was a minister
of education, before leaving for Matignon, to raise the level of students,
and especially the establishment of groups at the level of French language and mathematics in the 6th and 5th grades.
The official texts that set these levels of groups in the college will be
presented on Thursday to the High Council for Education (CSE, an advisory body
gathering of the educational community).
More broadly, the unions Sud Education, Unsa Education, FSU, Sgen-CFDT and
CGT Educ'action has called for a “week of action from February 5 to 9” to “defend public schools, demand the opening of current debates on wages as well as the abandonment of 'knowledge shock' measures”.
