The school in the center! Satisfaction of the confederate unions with the position adopted by the City Council on the state of alarm of the school.
Grosseto: El public school it has been besieged for years, so much so that it has now reached the breaking point: i trade unions they have been agitating for months to ask the policy for the attention, resources, planning, necessary to give dignity to the school and ensure efficient school service. There are many issues at the national level, from the renewal of the contract, to the investment of resources, the fight against insecurity, respect for contractual prerogatives. All this has important repercussions on our territory, on our children, on the work of hundreds of ATA teachers and staff. In fact, lack of investment and planning condemns the school old school buildings and in ruins, a chicken coop classesa merged institutionsin the lack of permanent teachers with the consequent didactic discontinuityto theprecarious workerswith disastrous results in the service offered to students.
For all this the confederate unions express satisfaction with the agenda approved unanimously by the City Council today: “An important position, which demonstrates the urgency of relocating the school to the center, investing the necessary resources and planning actions that modernize the school, fight precariousness and ensure a valid school service. For the next school year, in our province there is already a reduction of 20 classes and a decrease in the teaching staff equal to 21; To these are added the effects of the recent decree law 36/2022 which provides for other staff cuts, in particular in our territory we will go to an additional 40 minus “, explain the provincial secretaries. Cristoforo Russo of the FLC CGIL, Alfonso Nocchi of the CISL school I Fabio Severi of the UIL Scuola Rua.
“Obviously everyone the school world suffers great pain -they continue-, the dignity of the workers is constantly trampled on and at the same time an adequate school service is not provided to the younger generations. Together, CGIL, CISL and UIL, we represent 60% of the workers in the sector, we live the school world every day, we know well the needs of the workers and the organizational problems; it is our duty to pursue their demands and propose solutions, which, however, can only materialize through political action. For this reason, in recent months we have promoted a series of actions of protest and public awareness about the state of emergency of the school, which later led the City of Grosseto to vote unanimously the Order of the day.
Between priority actions launch, in addition to the allocation of higher economic resources for the renewal of the category contract and for the school building, the modification of the parameters of the number of students per class (DPR81 / 2009), which as they are too strict and in a large and sparsely populated area like ours. closure of smaller institutes in peripheral areas and reduction of the training offer in institutes. With the aim of strengthening the school service, it is necessary to review the planned staff cuts and return the training of all school staff to the area of competence of the autonomy of the center and teachers, with the allocation of dedicated resources. . .
Our hope is that all the pressures on the Government, the social agents and the local institutions, will lead to a trend investment and, therefore, to investments and planning; because disinvesting the school means undermining the future of the country ”, conclude the three secretaries.
