Why the education assistants in Puy-de-Dôme are angry

Criticizing the reduction in their working hours, about twenty education assistants from Puy-de-Dôme showed up this Wednesday morning, July 6, in front of the Puy-de-Dôme prefecture of Clermont-Ferrand.

“It’s like telling people, your work is useless!” : Joëlle, a retired and unionized teacher at FSU, recalls her years as a school teacher at a REP+ establishment in Clermont-Ferrand. Educational assistants (AEDs), are the only priority education, he recalls.

They have a major role, he explained, they allow you to divide the class into small groups or to manage a difficult student.

“The AEDs were called and learned that their contract would be split in half at the Academy”, explains Florian *, a teacher near Thiers. A thunderstorm for these staff, as well as for their fellow teachers who arrived this Wednesday, to support the prefecture.

“An important role”

“It should be understood that AEDs can help to better understand the relationship between students, teachers and parents,” explained Roland Lebeau, retired teacher and delegate to the department for National Education. They play an important role, both educationally and administratively. . “

“We risk having more standard working methods and poorer management of our students’ difficulties, Florian *fears it will be a white day.”

A delegation received but was disappointed

“We were told we had no response, that they were not responsible, he lamented. The rectorate will have to answer us and the members will have to attend the next meeting on Tuesday. Next.”

Contacted, the Rectorate of Clermont-Ferrand explained that “the establishment of AED jobs within schools in the priority education network is an academic specific”.

“These methods [en AED] reduced, but for support, there is still a way, these are not “dry” retreats, the Rectorate continues. AED needs are growing within secondary schools and the Academy needs to address this.

Amélie Gonzalez draws a more dramatic conclusion: “Over the years, especially AED conditions, and education, deteriorating, it’s pathetic!”
