Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, a “part-time minister”?

A broad program, which worries the instructing unions. Claire Guéville, nationwide highschool secretary at Snes-FSU (majority), castigates the “contempt represented” by the appointment of a “part-time minister”. “It’s simple, the Ministry of Sports absorbs National Education,” she quips. With the Olympic Games along with National Education, I do not see how she’s going to have the ability to commit her power full time to present points, regardless that they’re pressing. »

The instructor additionally deplores the management of the manager on points associated to highschool, which she believes is mirrored behind this appointment.

The earlier Jean-Michel Blanquer

“These multiple roles of the new minister show us once again that decisions for schools will continue to be taken in an opaque manner, in the secrecy of the presidential office,” factors out Claire Guéville. However, essential recordsdata are underway, and fear us drastically. Having puppet ministers is problematic in each democratic and governing phrases. Who would be the interlocutor, on this nice home that’s National Education, with its 1.2 million workers? »

A priority that SNPDEN-Unsa, which brings collectively the administration workers of National Education, tempers. “This is not the first time that we have had a large Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports,” recollects the nationwide secretary, Olivier Beaufrere. Jean-Michel Blanquer already had a ministry of this magnitude, even when he was not answerable for the Olympic Games. »

“It is clear that Ms. Oudéa-Castéra will not be able to manage everything,” continues the principal. She must encompass herself with very competent advisors, and the Olympics just like the SNU danger taking on loads of her time… But it’s too early to go judgment. We will wait to see how all that is organized and structured. »

Call for strike within the public service on 1er FEBRUARY

According to Olivier Beaufrere, the urgency is above all within the selections to be made quickly for the implementation of the “shock of knowledge” plan introduced final December for the subsequent faculty 12 months.

“We need answers in terms of temporality, organizational feasibility and means,” he explains. The roadmap that we have now been given isn’t adequate. If the funds doesn’t change, we must make selections, we will be unable to use the measures promised by Gabriel Attal to all college students. And we should be fastened shortly, as a result of we should begin distributing sources for the subsequent faculty 12 months in February. »

The union is especially involved concerning the institution for the 2024 faculty 12 months of stage teams in sixth and fifth grade for arithmetic and French, which require rather more than the two,300 extra instructing positions deliberate by the ministry. And if Gabriel Attal negotiated in December the creation of 574 positions in secondary schooling, the query of attractiveness can also be more likely to proceed to come up, with instructor competitions nonetheless struggling to draw.

The FSU, Fnec FP-FO, CGT Éduc’motion and Sud schooling unions are calling for a strike within the public service on 1er February to request a revaluation of the index level.
