Download Virage européen ou mirage républicain? Quel avenir by Nelly Guet PDF

By Nelly Guet

Pas moins de 15 Ministres et Secrétaires d’Etat français se positionnent, dans ce livre, sur cette query essentielle pour l’avenir de notre pays.

En 2014, l'Europe est notre nouvelle patrie.

Ce témoignage a pour yet de dénoncer l’immobilisme d’un système prisonnier du goé alors même que l’avenir de l. a. France est profondément lié à l’Europe.

Notre « école de l. a. République » n’est ni efficace, ni démocratique, ni exemplaire, ni éternelle : l. a. state of affairs actuelle est lourde de menaces pour notre contrat social.

Scolarisant plus de 12 hundreds of thousands d’élèves, employant plus d’un million de personnels titulaires, dont 850.000 enseignants, dotée d’un price range de 63,4 milliards d’euros, notre système éducatif monolithique éconduit 150.000 jeunes par an, est le symbole d’une ère révolue : une management pléthorique que ne justifie que l’héritage du passé, des établissements et des Académies administrés mais non pilotés, des syndicats menacés, ne se remettant pas en query, des mom and dad mal informés.
Les réformes sont systématiquement amputées, vidées de leur sens, suite à des concessions faites par des Ministres et/ou des Présidents peu courageux.

L’auteur a travaillé dans des milieux sociaux très variés, des will pay étrangers, des institutions de size internationale, ce qui lui permet de faire des comparaisons concrètes sur le terrain, des mérites et des inconvénients. Le récit n’est pas celui d’un spectateur passif, mais celui d’un acteur luttant pour l. a. réforme de ce système, avec un element de vue engagé.

Ce livre relate les multiples events de corrections de cap, qui se sont offertes aux politiques, de François Bayrou, en 1993, à Vincent Peillon, en 2014, en passant par Ségolène Royal, Xavier Darcos, Luc Chatel…. et ont été sciemment négligées.
Il démontre l’immobilisme et l. a. sclérose de certains pans entiers du système, notamment le rôle des syndicats et leur pouvoir de blocage de toute réforme, l’enfermement des mom and dad d’élèves dans des stéréotypes, le rôle timoré des médias et des ministres, dans leur ensemble et leur souci « politique » à courte vue.

Ce livre n’est pas un traité ou un essai purement théorique ; il est et se veut proche de l’expérience et des activities, de l. a. pratique concrète, de ce que l’on a fait, de ce qu’il était concrètement attainable de faire, de ce que l’on pourrait faire.

Ce livre est un livre passionnel ; il n’est pas détaché et neutre comme l’exige le regard purement théorique ou philosophique. Il est le récit d’une ardour, heurtée, contrariée, celle de vouloir ouvrir des brèches pour dégager des lignes de progrès, de renouvellement.
Il montre que les rouages institutionnels ne laissent plus los angeles vie et l’innovation s’exprimer. los angeles vie y est tuée, ou tellement amputée que c’est une sclérose de mort ; et cet point, hélas mortifère, n’apparaît jamais mieux, que lorsque l’on voit les efforts, les tentatives de toutes sortes se briser sur le mur de l’immobilisme.

Mais ce constat négatif n’a de sens que s’il permet d’ouvrir les esprits vers des réformes positives et réalisables, dès maintenant.

En 2014, nous n’avons plus le choix.

Le plan de sauvetage est minutieusement décrit dans le troisième chapitre, le plus very important du livre. Il décrit les responsabilités qui incombent à chacun d'entre nous, en se référant, non pas à un modèle européen qui n'existe pas, mais aux pratiques en cours dans les autres can pay européens. Il fait notamment le lien entre le monde de l'éducation et celui de l'entreprise : implication, management, évaluation, tradition du résultat, formation proceed, innovation portée par les nouvelles applied sciences. Les deux univers ont beaucoup en commun et doivent se rapprocher.

Le nouveau Ministre, Benoît Hamon sera-t-il l’homme de los angeles state of affairs ou serons-nous encore prisonniers du "mirage républicain"?
En choisissant, en 2014, le « virage européen », les Français assureront, grâce à l’Education, l’avenir de leurs enfants et de leur pays.
