Teachers from Jules Ferry College (15th) represent the lessons 10 days after the caillasting of a sports lesson
This Tuesday morning, the 40 professors from the Jules Ferry college in the 15th arrondissement of Marseille resumed lessons after 10 days of stoppage asserting their right of withdrawal. On November 12, the intrusion of hooded individuals and caillassages with stone projectiles interrupted a sports session in the Jules Ferry college.
For 10 days, almost all the teachers of this establishment located in the northern districts (15th arrondissement) have exercised their right of withdrawal. The reason ? The lack of security in the face of attacks that have been increasing for several months. Yesterday, only 4 teachers out of 38 had decided to resume lessons.
This morning, however, all have resumed their course and are now placing their hopes in the meeting of the unions with the rector from this Wednesday, November 24.
“That For a week we have been asking withdrawal rights every day, which we have not accepted. Despite the fact that the caillassages continued since on Wednesday the security guard who was there to ensure our safety was in turn caillassed in the grounds of the college “, Explain Guy Barison, PE teacher at Jules Ferry college.
“I worry a lot because when you see everything that is going on, they are fighting, no one is there. Safety, for me there is none. Okay there on my daughter is in a small section as far as we are concerned, so it’s okay. But when I see what’s going on next, it doesn’t make me want to put it at all and I don’t intend to put it here at all, I hope toi’ll no longer be there“, Worries a parent of students.
Abandonned. This is what the teachers at Jules Ferry College feel. Gathered last night in front of the academic inspectorate for a hearing.
They expect long-term commitments to secure the establishment.
“Our right of withdrawal is refused because we do not recognize the serious and imminent danger due to a defective security means ” more paid but judged on strike “, specifies Guy Barisone.
Throwing stones, intrusion of hooded individuals,n this college in the northern districts of Marseille, violence has almost become commonplace.
“We are just in the northern districts, we should put more security, watch more because they are still young people, they are on their owns, they don’t quite know what they are doing. So me I think if we don’t want it to drift, we need more security», Insists a mother.
Friday, November 12, is too much caillasting. 34 teachers out of 38 then decide to exercise their right of withdrawal.
For parents of students, stress and worry every day.
“Campaign l’Evêque, that has changed for years, it is no longer the Campaign l’Evêque that we knew when we were younger. There here, no one does not fit, it is insecurity. We are not at ease, everything abandoned. So what’s going on here is unfortunate but no wonder», Specifies a father.
The college students themselves feel this insecurity
“Sometimes there are incidents like that, last year the principal assistant and she had 5 points of suture», Remembers Hani, college student.
“Ah anytime I can die there», Launches a schoolgirl.
What one of his comrades retorts, “this is not normal because at school we must feel safe. ”
And about the security measures put in place, no one believes it:
“it can happen again at any time, it is not because there are going to be cameras of security, surveillance, security or whatever it’s not going to change, I think it’s useless», Insists a schoolgirl resigned.
“We hope for much shorter deadlines in the implementation of means of protection such as perimeter walls, such as the anti-intrusion alarm, such as video cameras. The deadlines are much too long, even for the raising of the fences, they do not exist», Deplores Guy Barisone, PE teacher at Jules Ferry college.
For Sophie Rieu, Academic Secretary of SNEP-FSU, this college is open to both sides and security is not at all guaranteed, whether for college students and their teachers:
“the sports area is not at all secure, that is to say that there can be intrusions at any time. The teachers’ car park is not secure either, the entrance toneither are students. Chosen that they have been claiming for over a year, because they have already had inclusions. So they’re just trying to find solutions but for now we don’t get them not. So this is why the movement has been completely blocked for a week, their goal being to be able to resume lessons for the children of course.. ”
Find short-term solutions to anything that is alarmed for direct security, and long-term to renovate sports facilities that are defective.
“We want to be heard, that they do the work they are committed to doing because we had short-term promises … and that theyalso tend that the situation is problematic but in a systemic way in fact. This is not just a security issue and would also like them to protect that our right of withdrawal was“ , Explain Gaelle Beneschi, French teacher at Jules Ferry college.
