Home education for children with disabilities may be tightened at the beginning of the 2022 school year. The CNCPH gives a negative opinion on the draft decree, which provides for a permit rather than a simple declaration.
Children are educated at home, some by choice, others by necessity. This is especially true for people with disabilities when the inclusive school is unable to provide the expected responses. An eviction that is not always allowed, which already imposes many restrictions. So from 2021, the separatism and school bill continues to worry. In fact, even if he maintains some derogations, in particular for health and disability reasons, he intends to change the family education procedure (IEF) from the beginning of the 2022 school year.
More of a permission than a declaration
Until now, these families simply had to make a statement at the town hall and at the academy. However, the new article provides permission “by the doctor of the National Education Department after receiving a medical certificate and/or a notification from the Separate Home for People with Disabilities (MDPH)” establishing the impossibility of enrolling in an educational institution “. Because of this, some are afraid of a procedure ” heavy and uncertain “which risks putting the spoke in the wheel” already overburdened families “.
Children can’t attend school?
The National Advisory Council for People with Disabilities (NAAC) is protesting. More substantively, it notes that it is illegal to declare that a child is ” impossible for school ,” echoing candidate Zemmour’s recent statements that largely rocked public opinion by implying that some students with disabilities do not belong in mainstream school (article linked below). He then states that “ this recourse to IEF is the result more of a constraint than an ideological choice of the families », in particular because they do not find suitable conditions for admission and study in schools or because the PAP (Personalized Support Plan), PAI (Individual Admission Project) or the notifications contained in the PPS (Personalized Learning Project) are not fulfilled. Consequently, CNCPH issued an adverse opinion on this project on January 21, 2022 (link below).
In every moment!
Another black point is that this declaration can be made at any time, and the academic authorities must check a posteriori the conditions of this instruction (compliance with the programs, qualification of the lecturers). However, the bill stipulates that the request for permission can only be made between March and May, for the following school year. According to the National Health Service, nothing in the law prevents this from being done during the year. ” The request should be able to be made at any time with two months’ notice, since the administration’s silence for two months is equivalent to consent, does he argue. This is essential for students with disabilities whose situation requires changes during the year. »
Moreover, the derogating authorization can only be granted for a maximum of three years. At the end of this period, however, the situation may not have changed. “ This duration must be renewable “, insist the KNCSOZ.
Finally, in the form, the latter regrets that this bill was sent to him only on December 27, 2021, while it was presented on January 4, 2022 to the Council of State, which does not allow him to formulate an opinion in the temperature. He now wishes to be consulted on the draft order relating to the permit application form.
