In this Quebec week of school perseverance, many organizations are uniting their voices to fight dropping out. Here are the various press releases issued on the subject that have reached us.


Hooked on School Days is great, but ...

MONTREAL, Feb. 2015 / CNW Telbec / - Community dropout organizations (OCLD) take advantage of Hooked on School Days to salute the courage and perseverance of the young people they support.

The OCLDs, through their mission, their approach and their direct services to young people who are more vulnerable, marginalized or with atypical backgrounds, support the perseverance of young people every day in order to prevent dropping out. “Throughout the year, the academic support, peer mentoring, dropout prevention and dropout support activities put forward by the OCLDs are characterized precisely by their flexibility and their adaptation to each environment and each young. Firmly established in their communities, they are well aware of the living conditions of young people, their families, their needs, the sources of their difficulties as well as their hidden strengths. " explains Marie-Lyne Brunet, president of the ROCLD and general manager of Je Passe Partout, an OCLD in Hochelaga-Maisonn! euve.

Beyond the promotion and encouragement, in this austere context, we cannot ignore the disengagement and the massive cuts of the State towards education; the lack of prospects and means to reach and support not only young people who graduate before the age of 20, but also those for whom school no longer allows them to develop their full potential.

School cannot do it alone. And yet, community organizations in the fight against dropping out, the main local collaborators with young people and families with regard to academic or educational success, remain one of the sectors the least funded by the government. While it has been shown that education represents a most profitable investment for a society, the cost of dropping out of school does not seem to worry the government of the day. In the coming months, this government will work on drafting a first School perseverance policy. The OCLDs hope to fully contribute to it so that it takes into account the realities of young people and families furthest from school and that no young person is left behind.

5e National meeting: Autonomous community action in the fight against dropping out: a collective wealth!
Young people, parents, community organizations and partners in the field of education and the fight against dropout are invited to continue their actions related to the fight against dropout and school perseverance on May 14 and 15 in Rimouski, as part of the 5th National meeting of OCLDs which will take place under the theme of Autonomous community action in the fight against dropping out: a collective wealth!

About
The Regroupement des organizations communautaire québécois de Lutte au déshochout (ROCLD) is made up of 58 organizations, spread over 11 regions of Quebec, and reaches nearly 15,000 young people and their parents each year. Its mission is to promote consultation and exchanges between organizations working on the issue of early school leaving, to ensure their representation as a privileged interlocutor with various public and community bodies, and to support them in the consolidation and the development of their activities.

Hooked on School Week: Let's give our students a taste for effort and a job well done

MONTREAL, Feb. 2015 / CNW Telbec / - As part of the 2015 Perseverance Days, the Federation of Private Educational Institutions would like to highlight the efforts made in the private school network by all staff to give students a taste for effort and a job well done.

“Successful schooling requires sustained effort, time and discipline,” explains Jean-Marc St-Jacques, Executive Director of the Federation. Children, from an early age, experience pleasure and pride when they successfully complete a task they had never mastered before. The adults around them must nurture this desire to learn and to surpass themselves that drives them. Above all, they must set an example. All school staff must show sustained commitment and constantly strive to learn and surpass themselves in order for the school to adapt to a changing world. "

For more than two years, the Federation has undertaken a vast project of reflection on the school at 21e century. By drawing inspiration from the best practices in force in Quebec schools and abroad, the Federation seeks in particular to provide more support to teachers and school administrators in their professional development efforts. Another important element of this reflection, the Federation is examining various options to better support students who have to deal with particular challenges, in order to allow them to develop their full potential and obtain their 5-year diploma.e secondary.

“If we give young people challenges that are disconnected from the world in which they operate, the motivation may not be there. The school must constantly renew itself to be relevant. Above all, it must integrate the new knowledge and technologies available so that all students, including those who have to deal with particular challenges, find the path to success, ”concludes Mr. St-Jacques.

About the Federation of Private Educational Institutions
The Federation of Private Educational Institutions is a non-profit organization that brings together 190 independent institutions attended by some 110,000 students spread across Quebec, or about 12 % of the school population in Quebec.

Hooked on School Days 2015: we need more entrepreneurship in our schools

The young Montreal Chamber of Commerce pleads for more entrepreneurship in schools for the motivation of students

MONTREAL, Feb. 2015 / CNW Telbec / - On the occasion of the Journées de la persévérance scolaire, the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Montréal (JCCM) proposes an increase in the place given to entrepreneurship in Quebec schools, and more particularly in disadvantaged, in order to further motivate pupils in difficulty. In addition to helping young people to have self-confidence, entrepreneurship in schools can help to increase the number of students who will complete their school career or who will continue to higher education.

The JCCM emphasizes that more and more studies confirm the existence of a link between the level of motivation of students and the presence of entrepreneurial projects in schools. In particular, a study by the Center for Research and Intervention on Academic Success at Université Laval made public in 2010 concludes that entrepreneurial projects seem to have a positive effect on the personal and academic success of students in Quebec.

In addition, the Quebec Entrepreneurship Contest, as part of its Valoris study, found that teachers themselves perceived entrepreneurship as an effective teaching tool in underprivileged areas. Even if a few projects of this type already exist in Quebec schools, more is needed, believes the JCCM.

“Even if Quebec is recording an increase in the number of students who complete their secondary studies, there are still more than 15 % of young people in Quebec who drop out. Young people who drop out of school and do not obtain a high school or vocational diploma cost the Quebec government nearly 1.9 billion $ per year, whether in taxes or in taxes because of a lower annual income among dropouts. We must use entrepreneurship to motivate our students to stay on the school benches, ”insists Ryan Hillier, president of the JCCM.

The JCCM also notes that the Ministry of Education has set up an optional entrepreneurship awareness program, as have Australia, Belgium, the United States and France. “We have an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone by bringing more entrepreneurship to our schools,” adds Hillier. “By doing this, we can have an impact both on the academic perseverance of our next generation and on the development of the Quebec economy. "

Concrete commitments of the JCCM
As part of this week dedicated to school perseverance, the JCCM is mobilizing in various ways, in particular by launching a new basketball tournament in partnership with the organization Pour 3 points. The first edition of the “La JCCM dunk Pour 3 Points” tournament will be held on March 14th.

For several years, the JCCM has also been organizing the Classique des Parrains, a culinary event that brings together the next generation of business people from Montreal and the sponsors of the JCCM. The annual event raises funds that will be donated this year to L'Ancre des Jeunes, an organization that promotes academic perseverance.

Finally, the JCCM also made a commitment, during the Je voir Montréal event, to set up an entrepreneurial summer camp aimed at young people in the metropolis who are having academic difficulties.

About the Junior Chamber of Commerce of Montreal
The Young Chamber of Commerce of Montreal (JCCM) is a group of young executives, professionals, entrepreneurs and self-employed workers aged 18 to 40. Founded in 1931, it now has nearly 1,600 members, making it one of the largest networks of young business people in North America. It is an essential place for the development of the next generation of businesses in Montreal. The JCCM counts on the support of several partners who care about the next generation.

“As a society, we have a responsibility to promote education and encourage students to persevere,” said FCSQ President Josée Bouchard.

"The week of school perseverance is an opportunity to celebrate the commitment of all stakeholders in the school environment and all communities so that students find their way, so that they can flourish and that they can ultimately contribute to the development of Quebec, ”added Mr.me Bouchard in a video recorded for the occasion.

The president of the FCSQ also took the opportunity to salute the exceptional work of the school staff who contribute to the success of the students on a daily basis.

Hooked on School Days 2015 - Encourage our children… and the Quebec government to persevere

QUEBEC, Feb. 2015 / CNW Telbec / - On the occasion of the days of school perseverance, the president of the Federation of Quebec Parents' Committees (FCPQ), Ms. Corinne Payne insists that we all continue to support the national mobilization initiated in the aim to encourage educational success and prevent dropping out of school in our communities.

At the same time, Ms. Payne also asks the Government of Quebec to ensure the sustainability of the regional initiatives put in place to stimulate academic success and perseverance.

Until February 20, Hooked on School Days (JPS) 2015 stress the importance of encouraging our children's efforts to motivate them to stay in school and build a better future.

In the current context, the president of the FCPQ is wondering what to do next. She believes that: “the government of Quebec also has a duty to persevere. At a minimum, it must maintain its efforts in allocating the resources and tools that will allow the work initiated to continue ”.

The announced disappearance of several regional consultation organizations is of concern to the FCPQ and the 20,000 or so committed parents it represents. “Already, local initiatives adapted to their environment risk disappearing or seeing their resources diminished, thus considerably reducing the positive impacts that they had nevertheless succeeded in demonstrating,” continues Ms. Payne.

In addition, “if the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport has itself reported notable improvements in terms of the high school graduation rate in recent years, it is also due to the efforts made by the actors who coordinate and lead activities in their communities that produce results ”.

The president of the FCPQ invites the population to visit the Internet link of Hooked on School Days 2015 and participate in the chain of encouragement young people who persevere. For parents, daily encouragement at home remains a beautiful and good practice which is also reported on the Réunir Réussir (R2) site, a site that contains evidence on the determinants of educational success supported by research.

In conclusion, Ms. Payne recalls "that in terms of school perseverance, beyond any doubt, everyone wins."

Profile of the Federation of Parents' Committees of Quebec :

For nearly 40 years, the FCPQ has brought together the parents' committees of Quebec school boards and supports volunteer parents concerned about parental participation in public elementary and secondary schools in order to ensure the quality of the education offered. to children.
