The controversy with the repeaters

The new Education Law, Lomloe or ‘Celáa Law’ minimizes to almost eliminate the repetition of the course in secondary school students as a tool for the selection, learning or merit of the students. It is true that repeating a course represents a major setback for the student, because, beyond the failure that he may feel at an educational level, he is deprived of natural companions to study an academic year with younger students, which can have a negative impact in your motivation. The purpose of the new educational law with its suppression of the repeaters seems to be to give less applied students the opportunity to follow the path of studies so that they can climb the social elevator more easily. Although the absurdity of the Spanish educational system, already extravagant due to its fondness for a clean slate every time the party in power changes, is that the autonomous communities will exercise their powers to modify the general guideline on repeaters. So a student will be able to pass the course in La Rioja and will have to repeat it in Castilla y León, for example, which will mean inequality depending on where the students live. A group of professors, pedagogues, professors, historians, philosophers… have signed a manifesto to alarm politicians of the risk that such educational legislation poses for education. Because the open bar and wide sleeve proposed by the new law to reduce school failure and facilitate social mobility, in his opinion, will not achieve its objectives, but on the contrary, because it will lower quality, effort, merit and content. The controversy is served. It is true that a student who has received poor grades cannot be left in the gutter or written off, but the educational system must guarantee values ​​such as effort and ensure the competence and excellence of the new generations.
