of Tuesday, January 5, 2010 The controversy quotas – words and ills – spelling, English and forbidden words – Controversy quotas The controversy of the day thus concerns that revealed Le Monde yesterday citing the Conference Declaration Grandes Ecoles (CGE). The bosses of the big schools are opposed to the idea that we impose 30% equity among their students. Their fear was that it would make "lower level." Since the controversy swells and after Richard Descoings, head of Sciences Po Paris which described in the same paper, the decision of "anti-social" several government members said they disagreed with this position. The Minister of Education Luc Chatel said he was "deeply shocked" by reminding a child worker had five times less chance that a child frame to go to big school. Even indignation towards the Commissioner for Diversity and Equal Opportunities, Sabeg. For Valerie Pecresse, "the question of the social opening of schools needs to be asked." This, she said, must be done through a reform in the content of the competition. The minister, who originally launched the 30% figure, addressed directly to schools: "Be proactive. Do not be afraid of trying to change your recruiting methods to take young people who have value. " But tempers were recalling that it is no quotas but goals. Interviewed by Liberation, Pierre Tapie, director of ESSEC and chairman of CGE, explained his position. For him, "The meritocratic tradition is not a quota tradition." He advocates a proactive policy in recruiting prepas but rejects the idea of ??a separate access and a change of the contest. We find the same position at the Henri IV headmaster interviewed by La Croix. According to official statistics, all training programs, 30% of students have parents or senior exerting intellectual profession, 10.7% are children of workers. But if there are 11.9% of working class children and 15.2% of children of employees in academic license, these rates fall to 2.2% and 6% in "business schools, management, sales and accounting ", and 4.3% and 6.9% in those engineers. The issue of controversy and this ambiguous slogan of "equal opportunities" is one of expanding the recruitment of elites. But behind this question is poses in another more important but much less publicized: that is done with the "losers" (to paraphrase Dubet) school competition? For, says Christian Baudelot in L’Express, "France has a system that eliminates in kindergarten and promotes early child well-born. ". How to fight against school failure and make the school one of the success of all? Words and sore Natacha Polony continues its "combat journalism" in Le Figaro with an article on "The words that say the school’s ills." It is a way for her to talk about the evolution of the school and cleavages that these words reveal. It begins with the word "experimentation" to say that this term, with the "field" the sign of a "vanguard that lays down the law" with a contradiction since admitted earlier that the environment remains extremely Conservative. She then takes the word "support" it down as the fact "that one confirms the arrival at the high school students whose level does not allow them to follow without special assistance. ". Without caricaturing my turn, one can see several implicit behind this simple sentence: ideology of the gift, denial of education, school reduced his role selection … We find these angry words with the article on "merit". For her "at school, the transmission of knowledge and evaluation served as pillars to traditional meritocracy, but have long been questioned. ". However, it evokes the philosopher Yves Michaux who merit is an ambiguous notion that ‘rejects a double injustice: "Injustice legacies and injustices of leveling". " Somehow, we find this ambiguity in the debate about possible "quotas" of stock in large schools we mentioned above. The caricature of reactionary thinking on this subject is provided today by Eric Zemmour in a column on RTL where he treats Richard Descoings (who protested against the decision of the Conference of Grandes Ecoles) heir of the "thinker Bourdieu extreme left "(!) and" gravedigger of republican elitism "and" useful idiot ". To hear (and see) if the heart tells you … New Spelling In 2010, Quebecois pupils who write "onion" or "water-lily" will not be penalized in their end of year exams. Acceptance of the "new spelling" … established in 1990 in France. Where its implementation depends on teachers (and dictionaries) says Le Figaro. This reform included five main points. The link is no longer required, (we can write purse, wallet), the plural of compound words can be written with an s to the second word, the circumflex accents are no longer required on i and u (except for certain conjugations, when the focus brings meaning to the form of the verb, "it was"). As for the famous past participle, it has become invariable in the case of "let" followed by an infinitive (eg, she is left to die). The grave accent is used to match the pronunciation, and "event" is "event". Finally, some "anomalies" such as onion, are changed. But this new spelling is hardly taught in French schools since it is "tolerated" and not mandatory. Nothing says a student who would write in his copy "it is left thin" would not be sanctioned by his teacher. More annoying, the spelling reform is not really present in the dictionaries. "France is very cautious on the issue of spelling is an almost taboo subject in our country" said Michel Alessio, head of mission at the General Delegation for the French language (DGLF). While other Francophone countries evolve much faster and without controversy on this subject. Still on the subject of language, also read the call of many associations against Humanity "English only language." Taking a phrase from Michel Serres, they say "There are more English words on the walls of Paris than there were German words during the occupation." They demanded "a clear policy in favor of our native and national language, and more generally for multilingualism: in college and high school, strengthen the teaching of French, learn the common basis of European languages ??and learn two foreign languages, the first of which is other than English; defend the use of the French language in international and European institutions, clearly reaffirm French as the language of teaching and research, to end the invasion of signs and advertisements in English. "Finally a pleasant way on this subject, I also recommend reading an article in Liberation interactive where users were asked to indicate the" words you do not want to see in 2010 ". To "resolve" to "explain" through "buzz" (like an English word) and a few expressions such as "Border line" (that’s for Zemmour) or "that happiness" is ultimately a pretty funny way to take stock of 2009 … … ———————————– Good Read ———– Liberation.fr of 05/01/10 (some paid items) Colleges: the polemic goes up, not the number of fellows the Minister of higher Education is trying to temper the debate the percentage of scholarship students in large schools, while since Monday, the issue raises many reactions.
