This is the point identified by the cadres of the majority as being “the most delicate” of the “separatism” bill. “Sensitive”, all sides combined, even within the Modem and LREM. Article 21, providing for more closely framing family education, was also the subject of a point during the majority’s breakfast in Matignon, last week. Objective: to succeed in demining, appeasing, before his arrival in the hemicycle during the week.
Aiming at the school “separatism” of radical Islamists and other sectarian aberrations, with the passage from a declaration regime to an authorization regime, he provoked the ire of many families who practice school at home. Which has found echo (and relays) in the Assembly. Admittedly, recalls the entourage of the Minister of National Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, the text has been relaxed several times, “chiseled”, after opinion of the Council of State, but also during its passage in committee.
Small changes are expected
However, “it remains a subject of tension”, underlines a member LREM. And internal discussions to “finalize the landing” they still say. “Matignon encouraged Blanquer to listen and teach,” whispers a Walker, when some regret his lack of “flexibility”. “Misunderstanding”, sweeps a close friend of the minister, testifying to “almost daily exchanges” on both technical and political points.
If it is not envisaged to go back on “the prior authorization which is necessary”, warns the LREM rapporteur Agnès Brugnera, small changes are however expected. In particular with its amendment providing for the possibility of administrative appeal before an ad hoc committee. Also under discussion, the search for a device so that families already declared and checked do not start from scratch in their procedures.
A multitude of amendments have been tabled
“Our objective is not to put people in difficulty,” reassures those around Jean-Michel Blanquer, who nevertheless warns against a “two-speed” regime. In short, “a crest line” remains to be found.
Despite all its precautions, some fear an “accident” in the hemicycle. Because a multitude of amendments – some even providing for the deletion of this article 21 – have been tabled, at the risk of distorting the project defended by the government. In order to avoid it and to weld the ranks, a final meeting of the majority is scheduled before D-Day.
