Mormont: Parents want an alternative to their children’s English teacher

Despite their best efforts, their search is still in vain. Parents of students at Nicolas-Fouquet College in Mormant are looking for an English teacher for their children. The latter have lost it since their teacher went on maternity leave on November 8th.

Since then, they have been patient. “We contacted the president. We waited. Then we sent emails, emails, and contacted the rector. We even met with MP Jean-Louis Theory (LR), says Mary, the mother of a 4th grader. We wrote a letter to the academic researcher. Then, in despair, we put An advertisement on the Leboncoin website. But we got no answer. I called the Rector on Monday, but I could not get anyone ”

“We only increase inequalities”

“Appointing a technical teacher at the beginning of the year was already difficult,” he adds. It took two months. However, I have two older children and they had to deal with teachers who were not already there. But at that point, they were replaced within a month. ⁇

Mary says she wrote a letter to the Prime Minister and President of the Ile-de-France region, Valérie Pécresse. “But they send us all back to the Rector,” he said. They respond to us, but do not offer a solution. I am fighting for my son. In order not to leave her boyfriend too far behind, Mary took the lead. “I pay for one hour of personal lessons per week so he doesn’t lose much,” he explains.

The Parents’ Association of Independent Students of the College (Peic) was also the first to be contacted in this regard. “From the beginning, the college asked for a replacement, but they were told there was no alternative,” says one of its representatives, Virginie Howdville. The children will miss a large number of hours: they were 68 hours in early January.The teacher’s return is scheduled for mid – April. We do not have much hope.
