Edition L'Harmattan, May 2017 - 84 Pages
En France, failure at school is attributable to the relationship with the oral language. The nursery school must therefore fulfil its role and be independent of the primary school (in the area of the written word). Also, the training of teachers must be reviewed. Children are the future of a country: their education is therefore important, and the teaching staff must constitute an elite corps.
For the author, attendance at nursery school cannot be compulsory; the first school of life must invite, not compel, the little one. The height of diplomas cannot be the first condition for the recruitment of teachers. Training should therefore be reviewed.
Children are the future of the country: their education is important. Prevention before kindergarten, with families, would ensure part of the success. With the active participation of young people, who are concerned about their future, prevention would bring about real changes, new solutions.
"Nowadays, in some countries, half of the population is illiterate; France has less than 1 %. However, every year on French soil, more than 150,000 young people leave the school system in a situation of failure. They are added to the already existing illiterate population.
Violence is one of the important consequences of illiteracy, and the difficulty or inability to express oneself through language most often leads to action. Yet speech, the very essence of human beings, channels the barbarity that resides in everyone.
Insufficient speech at age 6 is responsible for failure in reading and writing. The installation of language concerns early childhood, children from 0 to 6 years old. The nursery school, which welcomes those from 3 to 6 years old, must ensure the good installation of the oral language. In order to assume its role and prevent illiteracy, the nursery school must therefore be reformed.
This book consists of three parts: the reform of nursery school, Prevention before nursery school and action with families, and Prevention after nursery school and action with young people. An essential guide for all families.
