Homeschooling and incapacity: unfavorable opinion from CNCPH!

Homeschooling for disabled children could be tightened at the beginning of the school year 2022. CNCPH has a negative opinion on the draft decree, which provides for authorization rather than a simple declaration.

Children learn at home, some of their own free will, others of necessity. This is especially true for people with disabilities, when an inclusive school is unable to provide the expected answers. Eviction that is not always allowed, which already has many limitations. So since 2021, the law on separatism and education has continued to be a concern. In fact, while maintaining certain derogations, in particular for health and disability reasons, it intends to adjust the family upbringing procedure (IEF) from the beginning of the 2022 school year.

Permission, not declaration

So far, these families have simply had to make a statement at City Hall and the Academy. However, the new article provides permit “from the National School Physician upon receipt of a medical certificate and / or notification from the Department of the Disabled’s Home Office (MDPH)” about the impossibility of enrolling in an educational establishment “. Some therefore fear the procedure” difficult and uncertain “who risks putting the spike in the wheels” already overloaded families “.

Can’t kids go to school?

The National Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities (CNCPH) is protesting. It already observes in the main proceedings that it is illegal to declare that a child is impossible to school “, Reflecting candidate Zemmour’s recent statements, which have largely shaken public opinion when they indicated that some handicapped students did not have a place in a regular school (article below). He then points out that “ this reference to the IEF stems from the restriction rather than from the ideological choice of families »Mainly because schools do not find suitable reception and education conditions, or because PAP (Personalized Support Plan), PAI (Individual Admission Project) or alerts contained in PPS (Personalized Education Project) are not implemented. Therefore, CNCPH issued a negative opinion on this project on January 21, 2022 (link below).

At any moment!

Another black point, this statement can be made at any time, and it is up to the academic bodies to verify a posteriori the conditions of this teaching (respect for programs, qualification of speakers). However, the bill stipulates that an application for a permit can only be submitted from March to May for the following school year. According to CNCPH, nothing in the law would prevent this from happening during the year. ” The request must be possible at any time with two months’ notice, as the administration’s silence for two months amounts to consent, arguing?. This is essential for pupils with disabilities, who are known to need to change during the year. »

In addition, an exemption permit could be granted for a maximum of three years. At the end of this period, however, the situation may not have changed. “ This duration must be renewable “Insists CNCPH.”

Finally, on the form, he regrets that this bill was not sent to him until 27 December 2021, while on 4 January 2022 it was submitted to the Council of State, which did not allow him to formulate an opinion in temperature. He now wishes to be consulted on the draft order for the authorization application form.
