For Gianfranco Solazzo, Secretary General of the CISL Taranto Brindisi “In the face of educational poverty and the phenomenon of school dropout: not intervening would be lethal. As for the 30 billion PNRR available between schools, research, training, school buildings, those who have the perception of what is needed are only those who work in the school. However, we wonder, in the first 43 ml section of the PNRR assigned to Puglia in early school leaving, what union confrontation was there? The school does not belong to the ministers on duty but is a public good available to everyone. Therefore, the School Pact signed on May 20, 2021 must be made enforceable. “
To close the debate, Ivana Barbacci remarked: “We have a widespread responsibility that goes beyond our partners. We need to get back to the roots of who we are, which is to make the union a collective support for the expectations of those who look at us with confidence. Staff must be valued by putting them back at the center of training and not of “reformation”, that is, of that one-year triennial that the councilor evokes but which has no purpose. The value and dignity of the profession must be restored. And, at the same time, keep the educational community together by investing in all its components. The birth rate is Herod’s syndrome. But the demographic winter will not be forever. “
