The secretary of state of De Cristofaro: Investing in schools is to change the Country
Dear manager,

I would like to thank you for the participation of Tito Boeri on the school published by the Republic. Return to the themes of education, training and the knowledge centrality in the public debate is essential to build a different path in school, in discontinuity with what was experienced in the last twenty years.

There is a destructive delay of attention, knowledge and care towards the school. And this is confirmed by the same article of the Boers, by surprise - as so many commentators - across to the data of the PISA survey. And, allow me, from the analysis that, in rejecting any liability policy and institutional to the delays of the school and of the South, in particular, runs on the rails of the prejudices that contribute to widen the distance between a world made up of more than eight million students and several million faculty and staff and the rest of society.

you can Really understand the difficulties of the Italian school, without starting from the deficit of resources? You can take the examination serious problems such as school drop outs or delays of literacy outside of the social and economic contexts in which they develop? The same data considered by Boeri tell us to the contrary.

As the under-Secretary to the ministry of education and before that as a parent of two students of the schools of the South, I remain convinced that the rebirth of our school can live only in the commitment and the assumption of responsibility of all actors involved and would result in a questionable distribution of faults, which all too often teachers as a paradoxical scapegoat.

The attention he / she needs is the school system and is counter-productive to develop the comparison on the necessary changes that we need to work in the frame of the opposition between a North of virtuoso and South of the ignorant and lazy on the parents ' demotivated in the teachers – and helpless. It is sufficient a comparison on the conditions of the institutions and on the value of investments in school construction, to see how the situation is well more complex causes and responsibility.

The work that we are carrying forward, with the concreteness and without the illusion of change in a few months conditions of structural problems, part, instead, from the recognition of the centrality of the three main actors of the school: students, teachers and families. In a perspective of cooperation and not of confrontation.

A concrete example is supplied from the matter relating to entries in a role lifted from the Boers. I fully agree with the need to have in the competition for ordinary road priority, when not even the only one, to the entrance in the chair: after you announced the competition for the employees of the school, the school we are working in a new contest for teachers. On the other hand you can not erase the reality constructed in these years and, in a Country that has produced a unique contest chair in three decades, the regularization of many of the situations of precariousness chronic is needed, both to ensure the regular functioning of the institution, and to rectify situations of untenable working of many women and men who are committed for years in the school.

All together, we must come to believe that school is the main investment in our Country, the main compartment in which to measure the social and civil development of our Country. The priority commitment of the policy and of our Government is to create the conditions, and then finding the resources, to start this complete change of perspective.

*under-secretary at the ministry of Education
The response of Tito Boeri Is distressing to note from her response as the recruitment of teachers is still dictated by the choices emergency approaches with the precarious nature of employment, contests, reserved, and giving. It is not from yesterday you know that the school will need approximately 25,000 intakes a year for the next 10 years just to replace those who will retire for reasons of age (being Italian teachers, on average, older people in Europe). Certainly the blame for this lack of planning is not only this government, but I was hoping for a change of course with respect to the past, also in the light of data that confirm the serious delay of the school in the Noon. Instead, all invariably as before.

sincerely,
Tito Boeri
