The professor of Gijón Yván Pozuelo has the habit of putting a 10 to all his students from the French subject. He says that "gives them confidence", that "can be learned without anguish", that "stress does not encourage the student's progress" and that "note is a brake for learning». He does not use textbooks, he works for projects and evaluates "holistic". The exam is that his adolescent students prepare a video and are recorded debating, versioning the first chapter of the Little Prince or reading the Poem Dear Blanco Brother of Senegalés Léopold Sédar Senghor, and he checks "if they have fulfilled the goal." "We corrected what has failed and the student puts his own note," he explains. «If you hit, I put another 10 because I also value the skill in self-assessment».
The Ministry of Education of the Principality of Asturias has sanctioned this teacher with eight months of suspension of employment and salary for "attempting against the right of students to objective assessment" at the public institute Labor University of Gijón. He argues that he has more than a decade qualifying in the same way without anyone having called attention before. "La Loe and Lomloe endorse me, because they talk about different learning and different rhythms; Until Lomce says that all students have talent. I do not understand that you can give the title with suspensing and I was filed for stating. The suspenses do not make sense in a competence learning: a student can have a 4.5 in a traditional exam but a 10 in competitions, "says Pozuelo.
This son of Asturian emigrants raised in Paris, who studied with scholarship in the Sorbonne and is a doctor from the University of Oviedo, represents the most extreme side of an educational stream that is in favor of suspenders are not the only indicator to go through course , which defends that you have to give the same title of that to students with different levels of knowledge and that it advocates to eliminate recovery exams. The approval of the Lomloe has encouraged these teachers, who reject a "traditional" school where, in the opinion of it, "students memorize only for the exam and then forget." "We are at a historical educational moment. There are more and more teachers and parents who think like me », says Pozuelo, who, in addition to Professor of Institute, is Erasmus + evaluator, is part of doctoral thesis courts and belongs to the Board of Directors of the Historical Studies Center of Masonry Spanish.
"I see my students motivated and that they progress," he says. "They know, for example, who are Molière and Jacques Brel, know the key dates of the French Revolution and handle the main expressions. My method maybe it's slower, but all they have to know how they end up learning, even a month later. They do it at their own pace ».
Pozuelo continues to exercise despite the file. He will do it until he definitely resolves the resource of him before education counseling. He now teaches FP at the Tourism and Hospitality School of Gijón, where he continues to put notes from 10 to the vast majority of his students. "I'm not going to do anything else," he warns. "At least, until the educational law changes to expressly indicate that learning is a competition."
The inspection opened in 2019 a reserved information to Yván Pozuelo, which was 14 years old at the IES Labor University of Gijón, where he was head of French department. According to the statement of objections, it is charged to "qualify and qualify all its students with the same note, 10, regardless of their dedication, effort and performance, attentive against the right of students to objective assessment". It is attributed to "refuse to make training evaluation", "not bring truthful and effective records of the yields of their students, lacking objective evidence", and "intermingle rating criteria, reduced to a weighted values distribution". Another position has been "omitting essential elements of the official curriculum, such as reducing eight established evaluation criteria to eight learning standards." At the end of September, the disqualification, which has appealed. "This sentence does not get teachers who have committed crimes," he complains, and says he will go to the contentious-administrative way. Counseling ensures that the procedure "has been absolutely guaranteed".Updated Date: 07 November 2021, 21:45
