Mobilising the educational community around the school plan

COUR DES COMPTES

Although national expenditure on education is higher than the average of OECD countries, the French education system is struggling to produce satisfactory results. Despite the objectives of equality, the national uniformity specified is dealing with real inequalities in the treatment of pupils and low levels of co-education. Our education system suffers in particular from very centralised management, even if secondary schools [lycées and collèges] have the status of local public education institutions (EPLE). In its survey, the Court of Accounts looked at how schools can mobilise to build an educational plan adapted to the specific characteristics of their pupils, with the aim of improving their success. It examined schools’ capacity to take action, and as a result of its findings, it recommends strengthening the role of headteachers and adjusting further the allocation of resources to EPLEs to take account of their difficulties.
