Last fall, teacher Mathieu Côté-Desjardins launched a paving stone in the educational pool with his web series De-education. As of February 24, he intends to do it again with a more optimistic follow-up and more focused on solutions: Re-education.
The public will discover new speakers, parents and children. The series will also leave a large place to two activists in favor of the creation of free schools, an option to which he had already referred in a interview at Infobourg in November. “We are exploring solutions. It is not to provide solutions, it is to put them under analysis, ”he explains.
However, the teacher does not believe that open school is necessarily the right solution for everyone. “The important thing is to have a choice. In fact, there are as many models as there are kinds of children. But plurality, we have difficulty with that in education, we always need a single model, ”he laments.
Very critical of the education system, the young teacher received several emails following his first series. He claims that 80 % of them abound in his meaning. In addition to these new episodes, Mathieu Côté-Desjardins will present on his site a short film titled In quarantine with the minister of de-education. The Minister of Education having refused her request for an interview, the teacher decided to personify her. “The film bridges the gap between the two series,” he says.
The 16 new webepisodes will be broadcast twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting February 24. Bookmark your favorites right away on this page!
