The staff of Henri-Barbusse College in Vaulx-en-Velin will be on strike this Monday, September 2, the day of the new school year. Back to school should not be assured.
Will there be classes on Monday at the Henri Barbusse College in Vaulx-en-Velin, near Lyon? In a statement, this Saturday, the staff of the college Henri Barbusse answer no: "The staff, gathered during the day of pre-re-entry, refuse the conditions of learning which are imposed on their pupils. Despite several alerts in June, almost all classes exceed the threshold of 24 students. This is unacceptable in a REP + college, ranked among the most disadvantaged. No students will be welcomed on Monday, September 2nd".
The staff "demand that the Academy Inspectorate find solutions by then in order to respect the commitments of the Academy Inspector and the Rector. They also want the numbers to be reduced to a maximum of 24 pupils at all levels and groups", concludes the release.The return should be deferred to the College Henri Barbusse de Vaulx-en-Velin.
The majority union of SNES middle and high school teachers expects a "chaotic comeback" in the academy of Lyon.
