Motor education competition in primary school, green light of the CSPI, but the stick comes: “It does not respect the training and the didactic system”

Green light (by majority) of the CSPI on the draft Ministry Decree with “Provisions concerning competition on the basis of qualifications and examinations, which allow access to the roles of teachers in the context of physical education teaching in primary schools, such as per Article 1, sections 329 et seq., of the Law of 30 December 2021, n. 234 “.

The CSPI has the consistency of the provision with respect to the rule in the Budget law n. 234/2021, which introduced the figure of the physical education teacher in primary school by preparing a specific competition. Point of view, however, in addition to the relationship between the provision and the Parental Law, consider the Contradictions and criticisms arising from the decreein particular in connection with the overall regulatory framework in which the primary school regulations are incorporated.

In particular, the CSPI highlights theAbsence References on topics related to school inclusion and formative assessment recently re-introduced by OM December 4, 2020, n. 172, together with Failure to prepare for the assessment of pedagogical-didactic knowledge in the written testwith a disciplinary approach, closer to the competitions for the secondary and I grade II.

The CSPI also notes one Inadequacy of Entrance tickets offered from the new competition Respect to the pedagogical-educational and methodological system of the primary school. This consideration is expressed both compared to the possession of 24 CFU / CFAfrom a didactic point of view as a claim “not sufficient and in any case obviously not comparable with respect to the in-depth study reserved for these topics in the five-year university course of teacher education information”, both compared to the degree courses of motor sciences and sports which allow access to the qualification procedures because they do not guarantee the acquisition of methodological and didactic knowledge and skills for primary and lower secondary education.

The opinion argues this clearly therefore, there is a real risk that physical education teachers will not be able to meet the requirements of Ministerial Decree 249 of 10 September 2010 on primary and lower secondary education.“.

In addition to the detailed issues related to the provision, the CSPI emphasizes this it would have been essential to prepare for a pre-revision of physical education teaching in primary schools and possibly to proceed with the modification of school systems.as the decree under discussion has implications for school time and its didactic organization, precisely as a consequence of the professional resources, and the changes in the structures of the primary school and the implementation of the current National Guidelines.

The opinion is noted as the choice of the legislature (Article 1, c. 333 Act of 30 December 2021, n. 234) they will produce a noticeable subtraction of hours and places on the distribution of staff at the provincial and regional levels since it explicitly provides for the teaching of motor education two additional hours without change of expensesnot to mention them like this Increasing the school time produces a possible activation of canteens, transport etc.. with the complexity of involving local authorities, in a diverse national situation, which sees a known lack of adequate places, structures and resources.

Primary School Teacher Schedule

Will the new teachers ‘physical education be redesigned as primary school teachers’ services? Some worries are starting to spread.

The text of the 2022 maneuver says

The staff of the physical education teachers shall be provided with at least two hours of tuition per week for each class of primary schools in addition to the timetable specified in Art. 4 of the Decree of the President of the Republic March 20, 2009, n. 89 only for classes that do not adopt the full-time model. Without prejudice to the responsibility of both teachers, for the classes that adopt full-time, during the two hours per week of physical education, co-presence is possible “.

Therefore, there is a co-presence with full-time teachers for full-time courses.
For non-full-time courses, on the other hand, the hours are additional (compulsory?) And therefore, even in this case, the timetable of the teachers is not subject to any reductions.

Start Pai

The physical education teacher engaged in primary education is equated in terms of legal and economic status with teachers of the same level of education. Teachers (even temporary workers) are placed in recruitment because they are in the process of being placed in the business class corresponding to seniority ‘0-8’. They must then activate the career reconstruction to finally move on to the next step.
