No first school year, next school year, in Bondo Petello’s primary school, in the municipality of Albino. A news item that led to a speech by Bergamo MP Daniele Belotti.
Belotti, who is the Leader of the League’s Education, Culture, Sports Commission of the Chamber of Deputies, wrote to Minister Patrizio Bianchi and the Director of the Provincial Education Office Vincenzo Cubelli to review the decision for the first in the Desenzano Comenduno to transfer. complex, about 2.5 km away.
“In recent days,” Belotti explained, “the management of Albino’s Istituto Comprensivo Solari and Bergamo’s Provincial School Office have announced their intention to cancel the next class before Bondo’s primary school. To motivate the decision, which reduces Number of children, eight, for the school year 2022/2023 ″.
“It is unfortunate that such a decision has been taken,” said the deputy, “without informing the local government, which is responsible for the management of the primary school buildings, the school transport and the canteen service, among other things.” first class inevitably marks the future repression of the school complex, which represents a cornerstone of the community’s identity, which in Bondo has approximately 1,500 residents ”.
Belotti points out, however, that “the primary schools of Bondo Petello are enrolled to date 88 children, with 5 classes, a number absolutely above the minimum parameters of the Minister to maintain a school. As evidence, the recent positive news published in the local press about the maintenance of the Poscante di Zogno school with a multi-class of 11 students ».
“The school organization – Belotti repeats” can not be based on cold numbers, but must also take into account the social and identity role that the primary school represents. In the reality of Albania, for instance, the identities of the various factions are historically and deeply felt, therefore the closure of the primary school, the focal point of a community, would affect the whole social fabric. Hence the request to the Minister, the Provincial School Director and the Director of the Comprehensive Institute Daniela Zanga for the suppression provision for the 22/23 school year of the class before Bondo Petello Primary School to evaluate, together with the Municipal Administration, the modalities of the reorganization of the comprehensive school thus authorizes the formation of a class with reduced numbers, also takes into account the presence of a playschool and the intent of some parents living in other factions to enroll their children in the primary school of Bondo ».
