Education and Internal Affairs Niccolai: “Government needs more flexibility in classroom education”

“The right to education belongs to everyone and must be recognized in every part of Tuscany.” Thus, the regional commissions chaired by Cristina Giachi and Marco Niccolai, both of the Democratic Party, met in joint session to resolve the knot of school problems and to create comprehensive institutions from the interior, mountain or so-called disadvantaged areas. a bipartisan motion to bring to the vote of the next Regional Council.

At the table, to provide answers to citizens, citizens and local administrations. Therefore, specific requests to the region, within the limits of the competences provided for in the legislation, will converge in the Ministry in the address deed.

“All institutional levels,” said President Giachi, “must ensure greater coordination and guarantee the mayors the necessary dialogue to organize services in the territory. We also offer the government, all the rights of those living in small communities, The issue is complex and needs to be tackled as a whole without reducing it to a war between the poor. The service as a whole must be organized efficiently by establishing a clear principle: cThe feeling of the habitability of internal areas is an institutional priority and includes the full range of services, schools, transportation, health care ”.

“The question is being asked strongly by some mayors who are forced to turn to the region without the latter having formal competence in the matter and Commissioner Alessandra Nardini, who was present at the meeting, has also confirmed – Niccolai added – a number of proposals have emerged in the discussion, which will be a priority on our institutional agenda. We will also continue to discuss the criteria by which the size of the institutions is determined and on the expansion of a range of ancillary but fundamental services such as public transport. Continuity of education is an essential element and goes hand in hand with the quality of the educational offer. In this sense, the national strategy for the courtyard can lend us a hand. There are many issues to be solved, from the organization about the equipment for individual schools to the number of employees. State intervention is therefore essential because, at a time when the population is constant, we can not afford to finance new school buildings if the schools are closed because they do not meet the minimum criteria for classroom education. determined.

“It is therefore necessary that national legislation be amended by introduction more flexibility in class formation forecasts for demographic decline, otherwise whole territories risk being desertified from the point of view of the school supply – concludes Niccolai. At the same time, it needs an intervention on the workforce, also in terms of continuity: in this sense, the government’s bill on citizens can be a first answer, even if it is not enough. The comparison with Anci and with the Union of Provinces was very useful. We will take advantage of the prerogatives that we, as the Regional Council, have in place so that we do not face these problems in internal areas every year.
