The FNEJE and its volunteers fought to avoid seeing our profession disappear in favor of a generalized diploma, and to defend the specificity of the Young Children’s Educator.
The re-engineering of the DEEJE is now finalized and will be in place for the start of the school year.
At a time when PMI services are weakened in many departments, 14 organizations (including FNEJE) are mobilizing to alert on the situation and suggest avenues.
Julie MARTY PICHON, our Co-President, gave an interview to EJE journal following the preschool meeting. Publication in the June / July issue. Good reading !
“87% of children are subject to punitive and coercive practices on a daily basis which parents use for educational purposes”
“I decided to make nursery school compulsory and to lower the obligation of education from 6 to 3 years in France from the start of the 2019 school year,” Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday morning, opening the kindergarten meeting, organized Tuesday and Wednesday by the Ministry of Education.
Today, 97.6% of 3 year olds (and almost 100% of 4 and 5 year olds) are already in kindergarten. This announcement will therefore only affect the small remaining percentage, or 26,000 children in total. And again: nothing will force parents to send their children to school. As the historian Claude Lelièvre reminds us on his blog on Educpros.fr, it is not school as such that is compulsory, but instruction. It can be done either at school (public or private) or at home. Freedom of education is a fundamental freedom in France, at the top of the hierarchy of standards. Checked with the Elysee Palace, Macron spoke on Tuesday morning of extending “education” and not schooling.
In Macron’s speech, this measure will be used to “fight against the making of deep inequalities”. “Behind this figure [of 26,000 children over 3 years out of school, editor’s note] which may seem insignificant, there is a reality”, defended the President, speaking of “various inequalities”: the low rate of schooling in kindergarten overseas, and “disparities during the day”, with children who do not go to school in the afternoon so as not to pay for the canteen, assures the President. Who insists: this measure is by no means “trivial” – reforms altering the length of instruction can be counted in a few fingers. It was extended to 14 in 1936 and 16 in 1959. And since the Ferry Act of 1882, compulsory education has always started at age 6. The idea of sending children to school earlier is not new, however, and has been tabled several times. During the presidential campaign in particular, François Fillon (LR) had included in his program this symbolic measure. Under Hollande, former minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem had already raised the idea, proposing to go further, by extending the obligation from 3 to 18 years in order to fight against dropping out of school.
The Assises de l’Ecole Maternelles, a great crossroads between politicians, actors in education, early childhood, and more broadly in the educational community, took place on March 27 and 28, 2018.
The FNEJE was present to carry the voice of the Educators of Young Children.
We cannot say enough how essential our EJE role is there, associated with other education professionals … an idea supported by Jean Epstein, among others.
The local branches of the FNEJE met in Paris to take stock of 2017 and launch 2018.
– the FNEJE NATIONALE participates in many high-level bodies thanks to the numerous trips, in particular of its 2 co-presidents. The voice of EJE is thus raised to the highest.
And already 2018 promises great prospects thanks to dynamic members, at local and national level!
And excellent news: we will be one of the actors of the Assises de l’Ecole Maternelle.
