Wednesday, February 23, 2011 Education: reform of the reform? – Repetition: a French specialty – Bonus-Malus – the big cheating – Training: reform of the reform? We have already mentioned this on the reform of training several times in this column as a result of about Nicolas Sarkozy during a ceremony vows. As this speech was not explicit, it was therefore delivered to a work of exegesis. Will he only cosmetic improvements or real "reform of the reform". The minister homework help
, in his statements, bent to the first interpretation, but others went further. We remember such proposals Rector of Versailles, Alain Boissinot, which evoked sharper developments in training. For Gilles Baillat President CDIUFM (Conference of Directors of IUFM) interviewed by the site VousNousIls.fr no doubt, the reform of the reform began. "The words of the President of the Republic represents for us the official recognition that the implementation of the reform does not go as expected and that the locking elements have emerged. What the head of state called the practical training referred to us the professionalism, linked to the existence of courses, but also in how these courses are articulated with the rest of the training. It is not only by make-shift students that we will turn them into teachers. It’s a little more complicated than that. But for us, the statement of Nicolas Sarkozy announced in effect clearly the reopening of the site. ". It offers in this new context of work on several tracks, but all based on a return of alternation but could be located either in M1 and M2 or just in a second year Master but which would split. These proposals are also found in the summary on this complex subject proposed by Luke Cedelle in Le Monde (accessible text only to subscribers). To "reform the reform", the main track is followed so that the strengthening of internships prior to the competition by the master students who intend to teach. But as everything is connected, it also would require a redefinition of the role of competition. that it could be placed at the end of the first year of Master (M1) instead of the beginning of the second year (M2). This system would lead to a de facto system of "pre-recruitment" since only eligible students would access the alternation. The article Cedelle evokes little but you can also add it is not enough to change the date of the competition, we should also change the content. Currently the competitions provided (in the 2nd degree) leave no room to pedagogy and very little didactic. If one wants the competition both on upstream training, it is necessary that the dimension "job" is more present in contests that are presently built solely on the accumulation of knowledge. Certainly essential but not sufficient to make a teacher. For it must be remembered the: teaching is a craft that is learned … Repetition: a French specialty Le Figaro devotes a dossier to repetition. The daily is based on a European study (Eurydice) offering a comparative study of this practice in different European countries. In France, it is 23.5% of 15 year old students who have repeated at least once in college. This just puts us behind Belgium and Spain tops the rankings. At the primary school, 17.8% in France shows repetition rates when Greece is 2% and Austria 4.9% .A note that the statistic applies to all schooling is a student in two in France who has doubled. The automatic transition only exists in a few countries: Iceland, Norway, Bulgaria, Liechtenstein and the United Kingdom. Others try mostly to limit repetition by various means. The study counted five to six countries followers of a high repetition, Belgium, Spain, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Portugal, "the idea that repeating a year is beneficial for learning the student remains very present, "notes the study also points out that this view is shared by the faculty, the school community and parents themselves. Yet the debate on repetition is not new. According to various surveys Pisa, which measure the performance of students of fifteen years, the countries with the best performance are also those that have greatly reduced. Institut Montaigne to the Court of Auditors, all reports converge. "90% of children repeating in CP no longer have any academic perspective. No other school system soon laid the foundations of social inequality and despair ", recently denounced Bigorne Lawrence, of the Institut Montaigne. Another article in the same folder evokes some ways to avoid repetition. For example, evokes the multi-age classes to reason really in cycles. Many other initiatives revolve around the idea of ??remediation and support for students. This implies small numbers but also better trained teachers to offer a truly differentiated instruction noted in this article Claude Seibel. For the former director of the statistics department at the Ministry of Education, "teachers should learn during their training to deal with the heterogeneity of levels and change their look on the students. Many teachers believe in fact that success for all is not possible, "" Bonus-malus. Lower the repetition is good. But there are methods completely against-productive. According to Ouest-France, Calvados, the school inspector (AI) used radical means. This is actually a bonus-malus system applied to establishments: + repeaters = fewer hours. – repeaters = + hours. Asked by Humanity which also describes this initiative, the IA explains "Until more you limit the repetition, the more you’re penalized, repetition artificially increasing staff. It is therefore retrieve hours, somehow, are due. " But the perverse effect noted by several observers is that the penalty may mechanically cause the loss of some features of individual care of students. One method that is somewhat reminiscent of Gosplan of the planned economies of the last century and which may be carrier more negative effects than positive effects … the big cheating in the educational events of this week, it should be noted the rostrum Sylvain GRANDSERRE the Pedagogical Cafe website. In the text entitled "The largest cheating in the history of national education! "The" schoolmaster (as he likes to call himself) returns to the feedback of CM2. For him, they were originally set up to "assign a success rate at each school for the advent of a large school market towards which we are moving." But this has further complicated this year with the "cheat" that has spread. And he lists "-the parents who surf the net to discover in preview the content of books in order to best achieve their offspring. Children who are forced to the last minute cramming at home or in class. Teachers who, for fear of being misjudged, are circumventing the constraints targeted revisions in class and at home, first chance to draft before delivery to own, totally exceeded allotted time, aid prohibited yet made, reading aloud the text reading comprehension, written solutions to the table in the form of multiple choice questions, correcting gum in hand to change the response. " And he rebels: these cheats were not worried. "No, the only ones to have attention are those in all honesty and transparency refused, sometimes with the support of courageous parents to participate in this great charade.". It therefore calls for those who opposed it were not punished.
