Wednesday, September 17, 2008 The downside … The prospect of medals ceremonies in high schools to reward graduates raises particularly contrasting judgments within the opinion or overwhelmingly negative. Indeed 54% of those surveyed by Ifop for JDD.fr oppose the proposal of the Minister of Education against 46% who adhere to it. Note that the share of people declaring themselves "strongly opposed" to this measure clearly proves greater than that of respondents saying "very favorable" (21% and 11% respectively). According to Philippe Meirieu, this falls to an ideology of calling for competition and humiliation. It is in Humanity, Philip Meirieu is interviewed on this subject that stirs (too) many journalists now. He rejects what he calls the "trivialization" of the school and says: "It is not impossible that a medal motivates young. But the real motivation is built in relation to knowledge, when the student manages to find fun learning. Students in popular circles do not need a medal to want the tray: they want. This is not a nostalgic gadget that will allow them to win, but a special effort focused on education and profound changes in teaching practices. "As noted Humanity, the underlying issue is the promotion of merit. In this regard, Philippe Meirieu made an essential remark: "I am against neither the moral nor the requirement, or individual accountability. All part of the formation of the citizen. I worry, however this tends to turn victims into culprits. This injunction to individual morality exempts the company from any collective responsibility.
