Education is one of the priority areas of the Head of State. He promised, Monday, April 17, that all absent teachers would be systematically replaced. How does he plan to go about it?
2.5 million hours lost over one year is the latest figure published by the Court of Auditors in 2021. Short-term absences, regularly denounced by teachers and parents. The government could therefore offer bonuses to teachers in office, who would agree to replace their missing colleagues, i.e. a pact signed on a voluntary basis, which should provide 1,250 euros gross for 24 hours of replacement per year.
This is unsatisfactory for the main secondary union. “We also have to count the hours of preparation, so we will be well beyond the hours of work in addition“, believes Sophie BenetitayDeputy General Secretary of the Teachers’ Union SNES-FSU. For a principal, who regularly has holes in his schedule, this pact could make it possible to replace foreseeable absences, due to school trips for example, but not others. “The president’s announcements are a little presumptuous”believes Bruno Bobkiewiczheadmaster of the Berlioz Vincennes school complex, and general secretary SNPDEN-UNSA.
