Thursday, October 14, 2004 Le Parisien reminds us that Ramadan begins tomorrow. This is not without impact on the lives of the schools and colleges. "Grosse fatigue and low voltages" as the title this newspaper. Good reading… ——————————————— – Release of 14/10/04 the knowledge, insertion motor by Annie THOMAS national secretary of the CFDT and Vincent MERLE professor at CNAM. What can be the role of initial training in the knowledge society in which we now live?. The report Thelot, submitted on October 12 Prime Minister, presents us with a historic choice: the school is finally invited to take its place in training throughout the life conceived as an education and lifelong learning. Much is at stake. It is transforming the very idea of ??education, making it no longer an isolated step in the life of an individual, but the dynamic place where it can be projected in a course placed under the sign of movement . [...] The current division between the world of initial training and the continuous training is a major obstacle in this regard. The question is not to confuse them, of course, but to develop them a real interface. It is a challenge for the institutions, which will have to learn to work together and change of scene: the diploma will not be the last word, he will sign under the exhaustion of a route as the start of a other. Luck of the school, the fundamental importance of the mission are in the initial impetus it can give to young people. Its success will be measured by their ability to project in a route out of the system with a project, and not just a diploma and knowledge capital. The world where a degree gives you a life annuity is not a just world: try to get out. What we have to offer pupils, it is not master a body of knowledge, but the ability to assimilate new knowledge; this is not a mass, but an energy. And it’s a system that will allow the energy to flow freely: a set of institutions, not closed in on themselves, but forming a continuum that will accompany each individual’s learning, from one institution to another, from a knowledge to another and from one trade to another. Far barriers and rigidities at the entrance and at the exit, impede the movement and progress of people, we must build a system attentive to connections between cycles, recognizing the diversity of knowledge access modes, but not segmented articulated system where the transition from one space to another will be as smooth as possible, where adults can, for example, go back to school. Here there are many borders to drop, many barriers to lower. Read more of the article Lyon-III calls for the suspension of Mr Gollnisch University which teaches 2 FN seeking sanction of the ministry.

A law sought by Jacques Chirac and which is not clear who the Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin and the Minister of Education, Francois Fillon, intends to bring paternity. This is indeed the Prime Minister that installed in autumn 2003 the commission chaired by Claude Thelot and, in the same way, has received last Tuesday the report by the commission. A small yellow 160-page book that provides eight chapters of the tracks of reforms to allow "the success of all students," as on the cover. It’s even Jean-Pierre Raffarin, after presenting what looks like a roadmap for his minister, will hold "before the end of October," a large round table in the school with unions and parents’ associations. And it’s still the tenant of Matignon who decided to make the school one of three components "fundamentals" of his "Contract France 2005".

Scheduled for two weeks, she has stretched until October to delay the exclusions, it seems, could influence the fate of French hostages in Iraq. "We received procrastinate set," we recognize in the entourage of the Minister of Education. It is ultimately the expulsion of the imam of Venissieux, Abdelkader Bouziane returned October 5 last in Algeria, which has ended the wait. Since then, nine disciplinary councils were convened. They will be held next week and should lead to exclusions. These cases are a test case.

A month of fasting for thousands of school children and adolescents. Teachers, students, institutions must adapt to this party increasingly practiced by young people. Read more of the article Grosse fatigue and low voltages "Ramadan is always a tiring period, a trifle can turn into conflict," notes a principal of Seine-Saint-Denis, who "fervently hope" that none of unveiled students now come back with a bandana. Like many of his colleagues, he observes that "more and more students respect Ramadan and will attach real importance." "The question of Ramadan, which now arises even in primary school where children even more tired, is reflected in school life, which was not true there are still a few years confirms Hanifa Cherifi, Inspector General of Education. The day of Eid (note: Feast which concludes Ramadan), some institutions have up to 80% of students absent »Read more of the article ————-. ———————————– the Cross of Nothing seen … 14/10/04 – ———————————————- 20 minutes from 14 / 10/04 Nothing seen … —————————————– ——– Le Monde 15/10/04 the University of Lyon-III request the suspension of Bruno Gollnisch Bruno Gollnisch could be suspended from his teaching duties at the University Jean Moulin Lyon. The president of Lyon-III, Guy Lavorel, made the request Wednesday 13 October at Francois Fillon and announced alongside its decision to refer the disciplinary section of the university.

to see here clearly expressed. The French and German are an illustration among many, certainly not insignificant since Germany is the first political and trade partner of France. One can not fail to be surprised when we compare these words of a text sent by the Ministry of Education, in the Official Bulletin No. 6 5 February, all presidents, inspectors and directors of academies and departmental services. We learn, in fact, that the ministry’s project is to "provide students with consistent language course from school to school, based on the controlled diversification (…), on an academic steering strong bearing on the language card and closely associating first and second degree (…). in this context, we will ensure (…) to promote learning at the primary school of languages ??taught at the college sector and to ensure the continuation of this learning college by explicitly displaying the obligation of continuity. " This obligation is emphasized repeatedly in the text below. There would be no need to worry if the strange notion of "controlled diversification" and the "strong academic control" applied to bilingual education given in primary school, as wished the summit of the state as required for European integration. But the only mention which is made here also remains vague little compromising, "We also encourage all the possibilities to start the study of foreign language II before the 4th class." In reality, this text, inspired by the desire to maintain the current level of teachers, is a tool for promoting one language course undesignated. We see what it is when we know that the majority of school teachers considered competent in the language in English. If in addition, as recommended in the text, the poles include the teaching of one or another language, it is clear that the distance from home will lead families to abandon them in favor of English. The Spanish could keep up, but a threat to German, already declining rapidly (the choice has fallen by 10% between 2001 and 2003 in the first and second cycle). This situation is even more absurd than for a francophone, down a stubborn prejudice, an average skill for communication is easier to acquire Spanish or German and English. So learning two foreign languages ??should be promoted in primary school. Read the rest of the article ——————————————- – Posted by Watrelot on Thursday, October 14, 2004
