7:25 am: Masks and recruitments to calm the anger of teachers

At the end of this day of strike, the teachers’ unions were received by Prime Minister Jean Castex. After 3h30 of a meeting, the Minister of Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, he announced the provision of “5 million FFP2 masks” for kindergarten teachers on request, and the distribution of surgical masks from the start of next week for education personnel.

He also promised “several thousand” replacements “to deal with the crisis”, with the recruitment of “3,300 more contractors” and the use of additional lists, that is to say, candidates who have had the competitions but were not recruited, a long-standing demand of the unions.

Faced with the disruptions caused by the health crisis, the “mid-CP” evaluations, which were to start next week, will be “postponed to a deadline that remains to be defined”. As for the specialty baccalaureate exams, which normally take place in March, the Minister indicated that he would “do an analysis again with the representative organizations” to “see if it is appropriate to have a postponement of these tests. from March to the month of June ”.
