CHANGE THE LAW

To enable CE schools

SERIOUS NATIONAL CE POLITICS
In Luxembourg

Petition to the Chamber of Deputies

This petition has been proposed by Maggy Wagner, President of Schrëtt fir SchrëttHere are some salient points, from the French text:
The current law in Luxembourg excludes disabled children from the right to a private education... 
This is not consistent with the fundamental rights of disabled people to be treated like any other on the basis of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, ratified by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in 2011. This law is discriminatory since it separates disabled children and those with special needs.
Hereby, we ask you to amend the 2003 law referred to here to ensure all disabled children and those with special needs, free choice of education system according to their specific needs: ensuring the right to a private school and the right to choice in their education like all other children in compulsory education. [Schrëtt fir Schrëtt, the Luxembourg CE association] recommends the conduction system established for years in many countries by the eminent Hungarian physician Andras Petö…
This is an very specific and efficient educational and rehabilitative system, which aims to maximize learning and skills in relation to the potential of each and seeks autonomy and self-determination of the people concerned with the aim of maximum integration and an acceptable quality of life. Many centers and conductive schools operate abroad, as in Germany, on private basis (eg. inclusion schools)...
[Schrëtt fir Schrëtt] recommends the conductive system established for years in many countries, by the eminent Hungarian physician Andras Petö...
For our children with severe and multiple disabilities, inclusion in a basic school class is unrealistic: they need a different learning pace, other stimuli, a completely different management plan, encompassing the school side but also the rehabilitative side with social care and support for their everyday acts.
[The state's cerebral palsy institute] offers a diametrically opposite concept to the conduction system, which is not an option for parents concerned...
We believe it is time to ensure the families concerned the right to choose the proper education of their children with special needs, with the concept, the system, the educational and rehabilitative purpose that these children are supported. Their whole life depends on it. Please help us by amending the law referred here to allow the creation of private schools in the ediff sector.
[Etc.]

What's this all about?

Schrëtt fir Schrëtt is the parents' association for advancing Conductive Education in Luxembourg. See more:


As is often the case nowadays, the linguistic side is the easiest aspect of a translation. The hard bits are the social, cultural, political, historical contexts essential for understanding what the words mean.

Something important is going on. Parents are standing up on their national stage. For conduction pedagogy, as education.

Could somebody explain more – pour encourager les autres?
