Thursday, November 18, 2010 For or against the notes? A very French debate – Some reflections on evaluation – Philosopher in the second (and even before …) – For or against the notes? A very French debate Twenty figures published Thursday in the Nouvel Observateur a forum for deleting notes in elementary school. It was at the initiative of the Association of Student Foundation for the City (Afev) has also launched a petition on the subject. Anyway, if AFEV wanted to make noise with this petition, it succeeded. For this proposal raises many articles and reactions that make this a debate about which France has the secret. That is to say, unfortunately often EDHEC, based on approximations and caricatures and where 62 million "school specialists" that are mainly French express a nostalgic and skewed view of the school. Just read the reviews posted on the articles on this topic on the Internet. Asked about this, Luc Chatel, dismissed the idea of ??removing the marks in elementary school, saying that the note can be "useful" and recalling that students are also assessed on the acquisition of ‘knowledge’ and "skills". Nobody told him that in theory …… M.Chatel notes in the primary have already been replaced in official documents signed by his predecessors by the skills booklet? Because the debate "for or against the bill?" Actually seems a bit overwhelmed. First, because, in fact, today there are few primary teachers who continue to give ratings. And secondly because behind this debate, there are mainly the question (asked also by the signatories of the call) of how to pass all students and loosen the pressure on students. To break the culture of the note which permeates the French school system. Some thoughts about the assessment However, thanks to this debate, it is worth remembering that the assessment is not just the rating and that there is room for a real pedagogical debate (and therefore political). If one makes a little bit history, we must remember that the numerical score was set up by a decree of June 5, 1890. This means that for much of the 19th century, there were no notes including the baccalaureate (the jury, after an oral, decide if you were received with a system of white balls, red and black). If instituted this numerical score, it was mainly from the perspective of competition (schools, administrative assistance …). For the numerical score enables ranking and selection so dear to meritocracy and republican elitism. And it is this dimension of the assessment based on a logic of selection and ranking lasting prints that our French culture. This story deletion of notes is not new. In a symposium held in Amiens from 15 to 17 March 1968 (yes, before May …), a band of leftists (inspectors general, rectors, …) headed a dangerous pedagogist leader called Alain Peyrefitte (Minister of education at that time) already proposed. In the final statement of 17 March 1968 the members of the conference, "deeply troubled by the inadequacy of the education system inherited from the nineteenth century" agree on "the urgency of educational renewal as well as teaching that can not be deferred without risk of serious psychological stress, economic and social ".And this renovation including through the abandonment of the note. As they say "the docimological studies [statistical study of the rating -NDR] whose origin is prior to 1930 and which have multiplied in the last 20 years leave no doubt about the illusory nature of such a refinement in the accuracy rating and ranking obtained "Incidentally, but this is not our subject (although …), these dangerous excited especially recommend" the institution, with each academy, a university center for Training and Research education and two years of professional training for all future teachers. " The circular dated January 6, 1969 signed Edgar Faure, the then Minister of Education (we can not imagine yet in scalp peda …) states: "The numerical rating from 0 to 20 can be abandoned without regret. An agreed scale of assessment, free of excessive detail, will be less pretentious. Indicating the area in which the student is, we already identifies reality closely enough, we avoid systematically multiply differences which are not confirmed by other editors, or by the same correction to another era. [...] It will of course be useful to the student that the overall assessment is accompanied by detailed annotations, for example, spelling, order, vocabulary, syntax, precision, the skill, reasoning faculties, invention, artistic ability, etc. . Unfortunately, the French genius is made largely of resistance to change and inertia. On July 9, 1971 notes 20 are again promoted in classes that include an examination. Since reflection on assessment increased notably with the introduction of the homework help
common core that requires work by skills (not only assess by …) and international comparisons show that our highly selective product of academic failure and reproduces inequality. Alongside an evaluation based on a selection logic (and keeps its necessity in some grade levels) is set up an evaluation that is truly the learning department. An assessment to enable the student to be located primarily in relation to itself and more targets than another. And this does not necessarily pass through a numerical score … The selection will come soon enough … Philosopher in the second (and even before …) "With the president, we have decided to strengthen the teaching of philosophy" and "experiment teaching earlier, second and first," said Luc Chatel to the press after the opening of the World philosophy day organized in Paris by Unesco. "education civic, legal and social education (ECJS) classes of second and first will be particularly open to professors of philosophy, who will be able to address the notions program under a specifically philosophical angle, "said the ministry. Example: citizenship, rights and duties … The Department will therefore launch a national experiment with voluntary institutions to discuss philosophy in second and first, firstly through the "exploratory learning" (two compulsory modules to choose) and personalized support (two hours per week). Philosophy Teachers can also "intervene in a targeted manner within other disciplines underway to illuminate the philosophical significance," said a statement from ministere.C’est The Inspectorate General has been responsible for developing the specifications loads of this new experiment. A call for projects will be released in January 2011 from French schools. The question is whether this will lead to a generalization of the experiment in 2012. As recalled by Le Figaro, the idea of ??learning from the class first, or even second, associations of professors of philosophy are the long and have often presented to the government without results. One example is our friend Michel Tozzi defending this position for a long time. This is also the case of Michel Onfray "I fight for a long time for philosophy to be taught from the primary. I think the institute in second, this is an excellent initiative, it would then be in college in elementary, kindergarten, "he told AFP. There are also some opponents of this measure as Fabrice Guillaumie, philosophy teacher in Bergerac in the Dordogne in Le Monde considers that it is premature and that we must not confuse "philosophy" and "existential awakening." It is clear that the question is not only of age but especially that of teaching this course (which has changed very little) "Of course, think the teaching of philosophy otherwise. We does not like philosophy in second terminal. It would provide transversal way for teachers to work with teachers of history, science and others to establish thematic, stop the works, "has continued Michel Onfraydans this interview with AFP. Beyond the circle of philosophers, there are also other teachers reactions. Some are very wary and especially see this announcement means to occupy the philosophy profs surplus (?). Others wonder about the build options and school hours. What is striking is to see how any announcement today is looked first in terms of distrust and by first finding the hidden behind dirty trick. That says a lot especially on the broken trust between teachers and their minister.
