“No cuts in the staff of the Fermani institutes”

FERMO “No staff cuts, but an evolution that in the last three years has seen a decrease in both the ratio of students per class and the teachers and students “. The position is of theSchool office regional, which responds to what the Uil school said.


The numbers
The ratio of students per class, says the USR, “in recent years has dropped from 18.59 to 18.08 in primary, and from 21.21 to 20.90 in secondary. A slight increase in the index was recorded temporarily only in the institutes, from 21.40 to 22.50. An understandable phenomenon, given that the teaching staff has remained virtually unchanged, while the number of students is declining from one year to the next. So much so that the teacher-student ratio also fell in the same years, from 1.87 to 1.56. The Office then also responds to what has been said about the interior areas. “We have to ask ourselves,” they say, “what it means for students not to be able to go to school in their own territory.” If it is intended that the service be provided more than 10 minutes away, it can be said that almost all students in the first cycle of the Marches attend school in their territory. If we intend otherwise, it is necessary to clarify what we mean, understanding that the reduction of the school population (and not only in the internal environments) occurred despite the presence of schools. The reduction of activated classes and complexes of operation is a consequence of the decrease of the population and not the other way around ”.

The effectiveness of teaching

From Ancona also comes a reflection on the effectiveness of teaching, which, writes the USR, “in the interest of students must establish supply points according to the indices established by law, appropriate buildings, selected staff, updated and also formed with the realities of work.The pulverization of the points of teaching, especially in the second cycle, to the detriment of functionality, as an alternative to the creation of residential educational services, the confusion of typologies of schools and the their undersizing, impair didactic effectiveness “.

The musical choice

As for the addresses, and here the reference is also to the musicals as expressly quoted by the UIL, finally specifies the USR, “are provided based on the needs of the socio-economic and productive context: it is a territorial diffusion. it is not acceptable. The commitment must be aimed at improving the reading of the context in which the training offer is programmed, with the exclusion of local or specific reasons ”. For his part, the regional secretary of the Uil Scuola, Antonio Spaziano, specifies that the union is a general reflection. “The USSR is not a counterpart,” explains Spaziano. to the protection of an already hard territory affected by the earthquake “. Brave elections are needed, believes Uil, and Spaziano observes: “For the demographic decline it is not necessary to be powerless, nor to follow the logic of the cuts. A richer staff and fewer classes would fill a training gap linked to the pandemic.

The opportunity

In terms of musical training, the institutes, with Smim, “give the opportunity to keep history alive, to develop the sensitivity and culture of the students, which can be used not only in musical performance. In the area there are many productive activities related to music: production and marketing of instruments, orchestras, shows, media. To this should be added a school system capable of capturing the aspirations of students, citizens of tomorrow who will feed the economic system, where the activities that interest them reside, thus nurturing a richer society economically, culturally and satisfied in their aspirations.
