(Quebec) The Ministry of Education has also failed to draw a preliminary picture of the tutoring program announced on January 8 and launched by Minister Jean-Franకోois Roberz on January 27.
A month later, we still do not know how many candidates have registered as tutors or how many of them have been hired on the “Respond Now” platform.
It is also impossible to know how many students have been referred for tutoring and how many hours of tutoring have been provided so far.
This information is not yet available, and public relations officer Brian St. Louis responded to several requests from the Canadian press. He stated that he was looking forward to the data.
The new tutoring program designed by Quebec should come to the aid of students who have been struggling since the beginning of the epidemic. This should continue until June 2022.
School staff, alternatives, as well as those who have retired from the school network as well as college and university students have until Feb. 19 to express interest in becoming an instructor.
It is not yet clear whether a teacher can become an instructor for his own student.
In principle, tutoring should be done online, bringing together small groups of students identified each week by their teachers. Personal assistance may also be available.
According to a member of the Sherbrook Christine Labrie, the show doesn’t really seem to have started in all areas.
“I don’t know of any teachers who have told me that they have consulted with an instructor for a student in their class or that there are students in their class or that their school currently has tutoring services,” she said in an interview.
Education Minister Jean-Franకోois Roberz said the delay in giving information about public tutoring was due to things not going well.
“Because he did not send us any data on it, I see it as a clue that things are not going the way he wants, otherwise he will be proud of it and he will tell us.
“When it worked well, they were not ashamed to say how many registrations there were for patient attendants in rapid training.
“So if they do not tell us about the tutoring program, it will lead me to believe that the answer they want is not there”, MTo me Labyrinth.
A former lecturer at the University of Sherbrook, he opined that teachers in the Quebec Post should be given the opportunity to enroll as their own student tutors. “We will be more interested.”
Why not extend the appointment to other people?
“For example, I am not currently registered as an instructor. There are plenty of people who are interested and can’t register. ”
The situation is not “normal,” adds Liberal MP Marwa Rizki, especially considering that the needs in the network are enormous.
“Looking at the amount allocated for the schools in terms of additional assistance, it looks like about $ 2000 envelope for the establishment,” she stressed.
“It simply came to our notice then. I joined a school of 600 students, what should we do with $ 2000? ”
