Friday, September 4, 2009 "Invest in education" — spelling reform? — Make the call in 2016 … — Investing in education? Chiche! A group of teachers unions, parents, student and high school organizations and educational associations on Friday called on the Minister of Education Luc Chatel to put "his acts in accordance with his words." In their joint statement, entitled "one country, one school, Our Future", the signatory organizations — including the CIPF, FSU, UNSA, the NMS-CFDT, the UNEF, UNL, the League of teaching and Pedagogical CRAP-Notebooks — particularly stress the need to "invest" and to change education policy. "Yes, Minister: a country that believes in its future is a country that invests in education," the collective, in reference to the catchphrase of Luc Chatel used repeatedly and especially in his press conference September. "The statements about the need to invest in education and reduce inequalities must translate decisions at odds with the policies in recent years," the collective. Affirming can not accept "the programming of 16,000 losses (positions) extra in September 2010," the undersigned organizations demand the establishment of an "annual plan for recruitment." "After two years during which the school was brutalized, it is time to restore a constructive dialogue," added the signatory organizations that make the future reform of the high school a test to judge the opening of the Minister and ambition in cases initiated. The signatory organizations plan to meet at the end of the month to assess the situation and the responses of the Minister. Simplify the spelling? Should we simplify spelling? This issue back on the front of the stage with the recent release of Zero Failure to Francois de Closets (ed. Arabian Nights). In his book, the essayist, who admits to being "void" in spelling, advocates a massive simplification of the French language. Newspapers like 20 minutes today, and Le Figaro yesterday, come back to this debate by interviewing several experts on the subject. In 20 minutes Fripiat Bernard, Belgian playwright and spelling coach has a radical position "If we simplify, go right ahead and not half." This would notably by removing accents and double consonants in writing. Jean-Pierre Colignon former corrector Le Monde, fears that oversimplification of our language involves "changes that put in the heads of children irrational things." According to him, the spelling is part of general culture and it would be rather "advocated a gradual simplification but reasonable and thoughtful." In Le Figaro, written by Natacha Polony, it is strongly opposed to any reform. She called her friends to Save the letters. "It’s a cliche to say that the spelling is arbitrary," says Rachel Boutonnet, teacher and author of Why and how I teach b.a.-ba. "It is much less than we imagine. Number of rules, if they are never explicit, nevertheless exist. We must take it as a game which we gradually learn the subtleties. ". Alain Bentolila, interviewed in the same newspaper, "It is out of question to simplify the grammar, because it reflects the thinking language. Granting participles, combining a verb correctly are fundamental processes. They give to see that such verb goes with such a subject, it is this that is and not another, a pronoun is a special kind because it relates to such a name, that "which "Sophie returns and not" Peter. " Whoever does not master it fails to structure the world and its categories. What shines through grammatical spelling is clarity of thought. It does not simplify the power of thought put into words. ". Surprisingly, an article asks New technologies, enemy of the good French? and responds nuanced manner which is rare Figaro!
