“The conditions have not always been ideal in all establishments, but we are having trouble with this movement because we can still see that there is a new protocol being put in place. Now there must be a dialogue within each establishment to see if it is useful or not useful ”, he explained.

Hubert Salaün does not believe the effectiveness of distance learning courses.

“If we want children to be able to work, to progress, there really has to be a presence at the level of the establishments”, he believes.

Some teachers are calling for the setting up of alternating classes. The spokesperson for the Peep is concerned about the effect of Covid-19 on a generation of children. “Between those who dropped out, those who have trouble keeping up. Alternation means children who progress at 50, 60, 70%. So maybe the best, they’ll get away with it. But there are children we are going to lose ”, he assures.
