During his speech on “separatism” on October 2, Emmanuel Macron announced that home schooling will be, from the start of the 2021 school year, “strictly limited, in particular to health requirements”, and that it will therefore become compulsory within the school from the age of three. Thus, nearly 50,000 children benefiting from home education will have to go to an establishment next September.. Guest of the morning of Europe 1, Anne Coffinier, founder of the Kairos Foundation for educational innovation, reacted to these announcements. “It was necessary and it is welcome to say that we have a real problem in France with Islamist separatism. But in my opinion, the measures announced for education are missing the point!” she declared.
It is possible to dismantle the enlistment sites “without the need for a new law”
Anne Coffinier reminds that homeschooling is generally done “for educational reasons, sometimes because there is a school phobia, harassment or quite simply because the child plays sports at a high level.“” It’s not for these reasons that people are problematic when they are homeschooled, “she explains.” The president says: ‘Homeschooling is banned’ . And how will that solve the problem of the Islamists who have a control over children? Nobody understood! ”
For Anne Coffinier, the solution to recruiting young people who are not in school is not to ban home schooling, but to “dismantle the places where children are gathered in a clandestine manner and recruited. with brainwashing. ” Especially that, she recalls, police operations have already been organized in recent months “without the need for a new law”.
“Most of the creation of non-contract schools were schools without any religious dimension”
The founder of the Kairos Foundation for Educational Innovation denounces an “amalgamation made between people who use their freedom and people who are a threat to the unity of the nation.” Because for several years, more and more schools outside the contract have been created. “Just this year, you had 129 new schools and see out of the 129 new schools out of contract, there were eleven that were Muslim. I’m not saying Islamist, I’m just saying Muslim. And most of the school creation. out of contract were schools without any religious dimension. ”
“Today, there is an incredible breathlessness of the institution of National Education”, deplores Anne Coffinier. “The professors no longer have confidence in the capacity of the ministry to reform them. This is why we have to innovate alongside. This is why we have to breathe life into the system. We have to create structures with it. teachers who come from National Education or elsewhere, free structures that will be able to give a little dynamism to the whole system, “she pleads.
