The Minister of National Education, Pap Ndiaye, and his counterpart of Higher Education, Sylvie Retailleau, went to the Marne, Monday afternoon, for a trip under the sign of orientation. Present at the Stéphane-Hessel high school in Épernay, then at the Red Cross campus of the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne, they were able to appreciate, in the field, various tools and systems put in place to help high school students make a successful transition. towards higher education.
Very structured and positive meetings, of course, which also allowed the ministers to highlight the recent changes made to Parcoursup. The national platform for higher education has indeed just been opened to future graduates who can express their orientation wishes with a view to continuing their studies next year.
“We heard the concerns, assured Sylvie Retailleau. The changes made to Parcoursup on the clarity of the information and the transparency in the way of examining the files are perceived positively by the federations of parents of pupils. We will not completely erase this stress of orientation and choice of studies, but Parcoursup provides information and a certain transparency. That’s also why we’re here, to discuss it with high school students and secondary and higher education teachers. »
They did not do so with the handful of young people from the Rémoise Student Alternative, joined by some members of the Unitary Trade Union Federation, who had organized a “mini-demonstration” on the Red Cross campus of the University of Reims. The two ministers were welcomed and escorted under slogans hostile to Parcoursup and pension reform.
