CCOO: "The Ministry seeks to impose the 60 model hierarchical authoritarianism in schools"

Friday, January 31st, 2014

The proposed Order by the Ministry will give more value to the word of Director to that of teachers, inspectors and above the directors, leading to the establishment include a barrack regime in Murcia Education System Ministry seeks to impose the 60 model hierarchical authoritarianism in schools

CCOO commitment dialogados establishing procedures for conflict resolution and rejects the system "where no pattern or speak the sailors."

CCOO and warned that the regional Teaching Authority Act could turn into a trap for the Murcia teachers.

Our fears are confirmed when we know that the Ministry of Education is preparing a Development Order Act at which establishes protocols for conflicts, aggressions or complaints (which will replace the current protocol, which has been operating satisfactorily and that was in its negotiated, consensual and approved unanimously by the Board of Education Sector) day in which foreshadows one as a "chain of command" that takes us back to the days of the authoritarian school years 60 and 70.

It is seen that the Ministry did not go time for dialogue and agreements, not just unilaterally impose their views but rolled and destroyed the previous consensus that seems to hinder him in his authoritarian drift and tax.

Sanchez Director, as the set of stale and democratic right pre representing confuses new authoritarianism authority and transforms a standard that at least in theory sought to strengthen the social prestige of teachers in a pandemonium of authoritarian measures in the I left teaching I become kind of troops on whose judgment and even imposes word superiority merely because the place that deals in the hierarchical structure.

The intention of the Ministry, mimicking the logic of the barracks, is that before any question arising in the floor of the student center is subject to teachers, the east to the director and the latter to the inspector .

We assume, though not stated, that of these to the political office of the day, and all the Counselor.

How God commands!.

The principle that one who knows more is closer to the problem and is replaced by a "gallon", attempting in this way against the professionalism of teachers and, paradoxically, undermine what the law says it is defending the authority and breaks teacher.

The issue is even more worrying if we add that since the adoption of the LOMCE, educational administration designating more than half of the members of the committee that selected the director reserves.

In practice this means a disconnection center director who directs and its subordination to the interests of the administration, which will be the really selected and will depend its redesignation.

With the combination of both standards, the teacher will be alone with any problems.

The alleged authority given him will really mentored by management authority, and also from the center itself.

It makes teachers Murcia therefore underage in our own work, and we can decide whenever we decide "what is appropriate".
