These teachers from Haute-Vienna are knocking on the door of national education

From dream to nightmare … “I have loved French since I was a child. In the meantime, from sixth grade onwards, I mentioned in the presentation sheets the opposite of my future profession: French teacher, ”recalls Noli.

So he worked to fulfill his dream. “After my master’s degree in letters, I competed as an open candidate,” the 25-year-old explained. The Capes ** In his pocket, Noli was assigned to a college in Haute-Vienna. “Very quickly, probably from day one, I thought I wasn’t out for it.”She admits.

“I’ve never felt sorry for myself.”

“From the training center where I was told that if the students would not listen to me, I was not interested in my tutor, who did not want to show me anything about his practice, because I had to learn from myself,” he said. . In contrast, it is permanent baptism of fire, Extreme loneliness, I had to handle myself. I was not trained for this. I sank into a depression. I had a lump in my stomach and was vomiting before going to class. This is a very closed system, very childish. No one knows what’s going on inside … “, he says.

In Excessive and fragmented students, infiltrating parents, lack of training and lack of support from the institutionNoli quickly became disillusioned.

“You have to work twice as hard for one hour of lessons. You have to make something for students including dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysorthography … I go to bed at 2 o’clock every night, I spend my holidays and my weekends. I worked about 50 hours a week for 1,400 euro net despite having a BAC +5 and a Division A competitionYou find it normal, ”he said annoyed.

“The only thing holding teachers back is the students,” the young woman notes. But I have made my decision, I am going to resign next month because a conventional break will never be taken. Without RSA or unemployment, I would resume my studies to become a psychologist for children and adolescents. I have already taken a course. I am very relieved to have left national education. I do not hesitate to ask those who want to do this to flee … “

I understand that the crowd of young colleagues who come to the class, who have difficulty implementing programs due to not being adequately trained, adds to their pay terms. And it’s a shock, “admits Marianne Coraz, Academic Assistant Secretary of Snes-FSU.

More apprentice teachers stop on the way. This is very worrying. They are young, it is the next generation! But for them, it was a big disappointment and it immediately backed Maud Duviof, the academic secretary of SE-Unsa Limoges. Also, Jean-Michel Blanker, the head of the ministry, has not been helped for five years. A

But it’s not just young people who are leaving and not just teachers. ” After twenty years of good and faithful service as Principal Education Advisor (CPE), Valerie * is also leaving National Education.. “I’ve just signed up for my usual breakup,” he assured. A “recent” way to leave the organization. It has been around for two or three years and is on trial until 2025, ”the CPE said.

More and more contractual cracks

Valerie is not an isolated incident. “Furthermore, we are called upon to support our colleagues in the termination of the contract,” Mood said.

If he makes this decision, because he “saw [son] The profession has to change. CPE converts, becomes a “cop” and provides less support. I have seen more and more rigidity, verticality, childishness, lasting doubt and suffering. I told myself I couldn’t do it for another twenty years. Since I was no longer in the mold, I had to leave, ”he summed up.

Very compartmentalized

Before the fall, he would be officially removed from the public service executive. “Making a difficult decision,” he says. But I’m relieved … I’ve loved my job for ten years, then I started to see what else I could do: What opportunities are there for me? Nothing but being a head teacher. I couldn’t find a bridge for other civil service professions, or an open door for training future CPEs, so I went out of the organization. A

Thanks to the contractual termination compensation, he will be able to continue the training already started by “self-financing”. In her new professional life, she will step aside to help young people and their parents. “Schools fight bullying, improve their relationships, emotions and manage their confidence”.

Solid mutations

Sonia * will change her life very soon. This math teacher from a college in Haute-Vienna, who was also a school teacher, also signed a conventional break.

“Criminal, trivial, badly considered by the organization,” he said. “After nine years of teaching, I will finally be able to move closer to my family, leave the limousine,” he sighed. He no longer “wants to be number one in a file out of millions”. “I was an alternative teacher for six years, and since I didn’t see any potential and wanted to keep this desire to teach intact, I decided to become a math teacher. I expected better working conditions in high school, more consideration … It could be a little better and more, ”he notes.

I was alone, without a tutor, with an overloaded sixth and third grade, then three different institutions.. Far from each other, I spent my time on the street or in my classroom so everything was ready before the school changed. I was denied training. So I crack, she rewinds. I’ve had a burnout. A

“We need better pay conditions, better conditions for career practice and better training conditions before and during the career, otherwise we are going to face big difficulties for public schools.”

Marianne Coraz (Academic Assistant Secretary of SNES-FSU)

Burn-outs, frustrations, resignations … What is the solution for teachers to deal with this discomfort and prevent career crisis? “We need better pay conditions, better training conditions and better training conditions before and during careers, otherwise we will face big difficulties for public schools because missions are not conducted properly,” Marianne Correz replied.

“If things don’t change, it will be a catastrophe,” he warned.

It doesn’t just happen in colleges and high schools in the Paris area. ” We already know that there will not be enough teachers in front of the students at the beginning of the next academic year. If some academies suffer more than others, our academies will not be spared either. In technology, of course, in math, there are big risks, Marianne Corrèze laments and if the solution involves hiring contract workers who are not trained, it is absolutely nonsense. A

All first names have been changed.

Certificate of Eligibility for Teaching Secondary Education


In the first degree, it’s not good …

From Kreus, Emily * has passed her school teacher competition at Cretel Academy. He wanted to be in class in front of the students. “Going to teach in a priority education area (JEP), I thought I would find a committed team with a way. But no. I came and saw that my colleagues had resigned, tired and not so rich, “he reported. “As for the educational questions, there is no time or energy to think about them here. But I held on because my work was appreciated by the children, the colleagues, the municipal staff. So I continued, but I could not take it anymore …”, Emily recalls.

“It’s more hypocrisy and injustice than freedom, equality and brotherhood that should be written on the footsteps … Let’s take the example of generosity or inclusion, we always talk about it, but it is not possible without human means. I had a student who had special needs. All you have to do is compromise – that’s normal – he can’t keep quiet, he gets up on the furniture, he smears ink everywhere – he’s a student who has to look like milk in a fire, but what can I do when I’m the only adult in the class? ? The tug of war was between “what should be done and what can be done.” “There is a gap between these dinosaur schools without quality training, innovative pedagogy and ways,” he reiterated. “I resigned on a whim, I had no clear idea, I just wanted to stop it but I didn’t realize I was burned, it’s my family doctor who made me realize it.” If you’re not inside the organization, you don’t know there. What’s happening is just like the nursing staff. “
