More than a month after the start of the school year, hundreds of students still do not have a high school assignment. A phenomenon which is identified in particular in Ile-de-France and which would target a category of students only. The Defender of Rights, Claire Hédon, has launched an investigation.
On September 1, millions of elementary, middle and high school students did their Back to School . A day of recovery for many, but not for everyone. In effect, today, in Ile-de-France, hundreds of young people do not yet have a secondary school , according to the estimates of the FCPE (Federation of Parents' Councils) reported by 20 Minutes. The Essonne department, south of Paris, would be the most affected department. The president of FCPE 91, Samir Alioua, listed '400 students still unassigned as of September 19'. Nearly half of the students who find themselves without an establishment have applied for the STMG sector (sciences and technologies of management and management). Other departments, such as Hauts-de-Seine, also face the same difficulties. In Paris itself, a dozen student files are pending, according to the FCPE. ' Students from high schools 2 hours away, or those who have chosen the STMG, are offered the opportunity to do something else entirely, or even to redouble . We find that unacceptable. We are for an orientation chosen and not suffered' , confided Samir Alioua to our colleagues. A phenomenon which persists and which seems to concern a category of pupils.
The Defender of Rights, Claire Hédon, got wind of the situation and decided to launch an investigation , Tuesday, September 27, 'with regard to the fundamental right to education but also the right to be protected against all forms of discrimination' , can we read in the Press release . And for good reason, questioned by 20 Minutes, Claire Hédon declared that young people concerned 'are often students in difficulty, in difficult neighborhoods' . According to its sources, 58 young people are residents of Grigny, classified as the most disadvantaged municipality in France by the Inequality Observatory in 2020. ' The question of the right to education is fundamental in terms of children's rights, what message are we sending to these young people whose schooling is compulsory?', raises Claire Hédon. Faced with this phenomenon, the risk would be to accentuate the figures linked to the dropout .
She adds : 'If there was even one young person out of school, that would be enough for us to launch an investigation. When we know that there are 90,000 young people who leave the school system without any qualifications every year, clearly we cannot leave these children without schooling.'Source journaldesfemmes.fr
