The fact that Jean-Michel Blanquer unveiled the new health protocol on a Sunday afternoon on the eve of the start of the school year was badly received by the teaching unions and the opposition.

CORONAVIRUS – The announcement had been awaited for several days, it finally arrived at 4:21 p.m. in an article from Parisian. This Sunday, January 2, on the eve of the start of the new school year, the Minister of Education Jean-Michel Blanquer clarified the new health protocol that will support young French children and their teachers in the face of the spread of the Omicron variant for this start of the school year.

A device, without major changes but marked by a new screening protocol for students and teachers, detailed in an interview published just a few hours before returning to class, which was not at all appreciated by education unions. “The government has once again decided to play on the nerves of the teachers. Fed up! ”, For example annoys the Parisian branch of SNUipp-FSU on Twitter.

At the political level too, this late communication was widely deplored. “Parents, teachers, elected officials, get by”, notes for example the deputy LR of Yvelines Sophie primas. “An unequaled sense of anticipation and information, bravo Jean-Michel Blanquer”, completes Guillaume Gontard, the patron of environmental senators.

In the same vein, Anne Hidalgo’s deputy at the mayor of Paris Ian Brossat, the socialist president of Seine-Saint-Denis Stéphane Troussel or the Dionysian communist senator, Fabien Gay, all go there for their acerbic comment on this timing to say the least.

And what about those who will be responsible for explaining and supporting the implementation of the new protocol. On social networks, many teachers and parents of students regretted the announcement on a Sunday afternoon of the device.

Some even go so far as to compare the minister to a student who would have waited until the last moment to do his homework, despite the two weeks of vacation that have just passed.

Moreover, while many observers complained about the fact that the protocol was communicated by means of a paid article on the website of the Parisian, it was finally made available on the website of the Ministry of Education. All reinforced by a very long FAQ.

Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer himself shared a summary on his Twitter account at 6 p.m., shortly after a press release was sent to editors. Not sure that this is enough to calm the discontent of teachers and parents of students in a context of extremely rapid spread of the Omicron variant.
