Home Schooling

Homeschooling and disability: adverse opinion from CNCPH!

Home education for disabled children could become stricter at the beginning of the 2022 school year. The CNCPH is negative about the draft decree, which provides for authorization rather than a simple declaration.

Children learn at home, some of their own volition, others out of necessity. This is especially true for people with disabilities, when an inclusive school is not able to provide the expected answers. Eviction, which is not always possible, which is already a lot of restrictions. As of 2021, the law on separatism and education continues to be a concern. In fact, even if it maintains certain exceptions, mainly for health and disability reasons, it intends to modify the family education procedure (IEF) from the beginning of the 2022 school year.

A permission, not a statement

Until now, these families simply had to make a statement to the town hall and the academy. However, the new article stipulates permission “from the national school doctor after receiving a medical certificate and/or notification from the Departmental House for Persons with Disabilities (MDPH)” about the impossibility of enrolling in an educational institution “. Some therefore fear the process” difficult and uncertain “who risks putting a spoke in the wheels” already overburdened families “.

Children can’t go to school?

The National Advisory Committee for Persons with Disabilities (CNCPH) protests. Already on the merits, it notes that it is illegal to declare that a child is ” impossible to school ”, echoing candidate Zemmour’s recent statements that largely shook public opinion when he suggested that some disabled students do not belong in a mainstream school (article linked below). He then points out that “ this appeal to the IEF results from a limitation rather than an ideological choice of the families » mainly because the schools do not have suitable admission and education conditions, or because the PAP (Personalized Support Plan), PAI (Individual Admission Project) or announcements contained in the PPS (Personalized Education Project) are not implemented. CNCPH therefore issued a negative opinion on this project on January 21, 2022 (link below).

Every time!

Another black point, this statement can be made at any time, while it is up to the academic authorities to verify a posteriori the conditions of this teaching (respecting the programs, qualifications of the speakers). However, the draft law stipulates that an application for a permit can only be submitted from March to May for the following school year. According to the CNCPH, nothing in the law would prevent this from happening during the year. ” The application must be submitted at any time with a two-month notice period, since the silence of the administration for a period of two months is equivalent to consent, he is arguing. This is necessary for students with disabilities, whose situation is known to require changes during the year. »

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

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