resources Pnrr Minister of Education, excluding 66% of Puglia institutes

“It is very serious the behavior assumed by the Ministry of Education that, in allocating the first tranche of resources of the Pnrr aimed at reducing early school leaving to 3,198 schools across the country, adopted some criteria of distribution, at least , questionable by both merit and method inspired, most likely, by a poorly concealed intention of union disintermediation. In Puglia there are 212 schools identified (34% of the total) (68 in the province of Bari, 24 in Brindisi, 49 in Foggia , 36 in Lecce and 35 in Taranto) for an amount of 43,131,439.89 euros “, is what informs in a note, the Flc Cgil Puglia.

Specifically, 66% of schools would be excluded from funding: “The FLC CGIL considers the objective of combating dispersion and overcoming territorial gaps a priority, but it cannot fail to denounce the danger of proceeding using the results of the tests as a criterion. Invalsi, degrading, in fact, the role that all school staff play with passion and dedication. Over time, Invalsi tests have transformed their vocation from the administration of sample tests (sample evaluation) for the evaluation of the national school system to standardized census tests mainly aimed at measuring and certifying the individual competencies of students, in the evaluation of individual centers and, indirectly, also of teachers, also leaving aside that the standardized nature of the measurement tool adopted conflicts with the infinite variety of cases. I compose are the measured reality “.

“The confidence placed – reads the union’s note – in the standardized tests then reaches paroxysmal levels, if not pathological, when it is considered that, at the direct proposal of Invalsi, a type of early school leaving has been created entirely Italian , defined as “implicit dispersion” or “hidden” with which students are identified who “get the baccalaureate degree but without having achieved the required core competencies”, as we read on the website of Invalsi that, of this thus, it operates an invasion of the field against the evaluation of the teaching staff of the didactic activity of the class council, in addition, much more complex than a simple improvised survey that has already produced a great damage in the distribution of the first section of resources of the PNR aimed at reducing explicit school dropout ”.

“The issuance of the provision (ministerial decree 170 of June 24, 2022) occurred without the required union information: the Flc Cgil first requested the activation of an urgent meeting and, in the absence of a response, proceeded then to a warning of lack of information to convene the trade unions to agree and examine the DM 170/22 that has just been approved and to assess the modifications and incorporations “.

According to the union, in order to contrast the dispersion and overcome the territorial gaps, however, structural and non-specific interventions are needed to improve the national education system as a whole: “Staff training and the possibility of intervening in smaller groups are essential. , stability of the personnel, endowment of didactic surroundings of learning and auxiliaries of laboratory for a pedagogy of inclusion and operation ”.

Therefore, the Region will have to play a key role: “At this point, it will be appropriate for the ongoing regional project ‘Puglia scuola +’ for the next school year to intervene mainly to rebalance the situation through regional allocation. Resources (25 million euros of priority funding for Puglia 1st cycle schools, de facto excluded from the ministerial provision.And it is not surprising, like Flc Cgil Puglia, we have repeatedly asked Councilor Leo for the Region to take steps to enter into an agreement with the ministry so that the recognition of the service performed as a useful service for the recognition of the score to the teachers and staff of ATA involved in the activities of the project, as happened in the past with the project ‘Rights to the’ school ‘”.
