“The first news is still the departure of Amélie Oudéa-Castéra who is therefore excluded from National Education”reacts, Thursday February 8, on franceinfo Sophie Vénétitay, general secretary of SNES-FSU (the most representative union of secondary education), while the portfolio of National Education has been withdrawn from Amélie Oudéa-Castéra who remains Minister of Sports .
“It’s a good thing, something that was necessary. It took Emmanuel Macron a little time to hear the urgency of the situation. He ended up hearing what we were saying,” rejoices Sophie Vénétitay, “this shows that our voice carries weight.”
“We are waiting for it”
“Amélie Oudéa-Castéra has greatly damaged National Education, there was an urgent need to turn the page. Now we have a new minister, Nicole Belloubet, who is a minister with her back to the wall who arrives at a moment of very important crisis”. Nicole Belloubet “is she going to be the minister against the staff or with the staff in view of the challenges that await her?”asks Sophie Vénétitay. “We are eagerly awaiting it because it comes at a time when National Education is in a deep crisis. This public school is not far from collapse and we have already lost four weeks with this which happened throughout the month of January.
Sophie Vénétitay “wants to solemnly challenge” Nicole Belloubet, “she will have to prove that she really has room for maneuver to act for National Education”she will have to prove it “by meeting us in the coming days, by taking measures on salaries or on the clash of knowledge and on the question of level groups, a measure rejected by the trade union organizations” and we will have to “let her prove to us that she is a minister who listens to staff rather than a minister who applies a road map while being completely disconnected from reality.”
