Jean-Michel Blanquer pays his casually – Release

The Covid-19 pandemic in Francedossier
Approximate in his decisions, rigid in his attitude, the Minister of Education failed to take into account the daily realities of the educational community. Who is mobilizing massively this Thursday.

One “Minister of open schools” which ends up, for a day, with closed schools: the failure is obvious. Or how the Minister of National Education succeeded, in the midst of a pandemic, in transforming the consensus on maintaining face-to-face lessons – to be credited to the government – into an educational and political fiasco. Charitable spirits will grant Jean-Michel Blanquer that the omicron tsunami shook everyone. And that school is a more inflammable subject than any other because it is about our children. This does not prevent the first of the Macronist class from going through a crisis in the crisis for which he is largely responsible. He sinned out of arrogance. On numerous occasions, Jean-Michel Blanquer, at a press conference, in the Council of Ministers, during his media interventions, gave the feeling of being approximate, got his feet in the carpet of health protocols, had to to clarify a few hours later his point, even saw himself contradicted by his own administration.

In short, he showed off the air, to the tune of “stewardship will follow”. This not only did not follow, but the system cracked under pressure from omicron. While the government has continued to erect the “pragmatism” as a compass in his management of an evolving epidemic, Jean-Michel Blanquer gave the feeling of being rigid, little listening to teachers overwhelmed and exhausted after two years of Covid. Believing himself to be protected by the Elysee Palace in its mission to transform the school, he did not know how to put away his costume as an ultra-political minister, even an ideologist, when the situation demanded dialogue and empathy, looking down on the after-sales service of health decisions and their impact on the daily life of the entire educational community. When teachers, parents and children were on the verge of hysterics, he appeared to be a cold-blooded minister.
