Jean Castex’s announcements to simplify the health protocol in schools will not have been enough. The first primary union, the SNUipp-FSU, predicts 75% of strikers and half of the schools closed for the day of strike scheduled for January 13, in an estimate communicated Tuesday, January 11. “This historic mobilization by its magnitude over the last twenty years is not a ‘strike against the virus’ but illustrates the growing fed up in schools”, explains the union in his press release, evoking in passing the “permanent lies of the Minister of Education”.

“Not only does the current protocol fail to protect students, staff and their families, it also completely disrupts the school. Thus, contrary to repeated government claims, it is not the school that is open but a form of ‘nursery’ “, denounces the SNUipp-FSU.

According to the union, “under the current conditions, the pupils cannot learn correctly, their number being very fluctuating and hybrid teaching between face-to-face and distance learning impossible to implement”. The SNUipp-FSU also points “the non-replacement of sick teachers which is becoming untenable”.
