VIKTOR ILIEV: DOES ANYONE LISTEN TO STUDENTS?

  • PDF

  • E-mail

Teacher throughout whole year grade and evaluate students, but weather students have chance only once in a year to evaluate their teachers and that to be the manner to see which teacher model suits for students?

We live in a period when the schools all the time implement some “new” things in their work. But then, what should we do with the “old” ones. With that continuous insertion of new methods, approaches we came into a situation every day students to have classes 7 hours per day, which is one of the main factors that influence the other processes. What is next? Eight hours? Does anyone asked the students weather they are capable to attend 7 hours classes, and in addition to attend school clubs, additional classes, to work on projects, to be active in the school organizations, and plus to find enough time to prepare their exams, to write their homework and/or to prepare themselves for the external exams?

Already three years together with the Coalition SEGA at national level, and with its member organizations at local level, we continue to conduct the project “Implementation of the Convention on the rights of the child in Macedonia” supported by the Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation. The activities also include national monitoring of the institutions on the inclusion of children in decision making, and as well school activities for strengthening the capacities of the school organizations, organizing info days for the child ombudspersons, and as well implementation of annual survey for on the students’ attitudes for many questions concerning them in the schools. It is up to the teachers and school staff weather going to listen and understand their attitudes for various questions in the school life. We implement the project in Bitola for two years and from our experience lot of issues come up and if we sincerely answer to them I sincerely hope that we will find the causes, but as well the possible solutions for different current processes in schools.

The school is system in which different processes coexist. I wonder are those processes coordinated and if they have common flow or all of them pull to their side disrupting the system apart?

We hear different phrases, processes and projects are being implemented, we hear for the external exams and evaluation, we hear for integrated education, we speak for youth participation through school organizations. These are just few topics, and there are so many. But, here I don’t mention these processes as for topic of discussion but only as examples of processes that are part of that huge system.

Also, I try to understand weather and how school councils hear the students’ opinions on different issues, and how they try to adjust the happenings in the schools basing on the students’ needs? The reality is that only school councils are Alfa and Omega in the schools. There are parents councils but the question is do they actually function, there are school boards and number of other bodies. All of this is nicely regulated in the country’s legislation and school acts. Only participatory body of students no one recognized as important and that doesn’t exist in any laws or school statutes like the school organization as official representative body consisted of students! Is this by accident?   And where this is by chance somehow mentioned I wonder whether the school council encourages the students on self-organizing, coordination and building attitudes towards different issues? I often hear that “the students are not enough mature to build their own opinion, and we postpone it for high school, or even university”, and that’s why at the end we will have young people learning by they are own all the things that they have missed. Isn’t the school place for learning? The answer on this question is obvious and that gives us answer that when youth grow up will not be capable to coordinate themselves, to express their opinion and to realize initiatives and project activities.

On the other hand, outside the schools we have a world not familiar to teachers and parents councils – informal system of education which is realized through youth organizations and youth workers as resource. Why this resource is not enough utilized by the schools and other institutions? What are the obstacles on the road of cooperation among actors in the formal and informal educational systems? How it is possible terms like volunteerism, school activism, youth work are not familiar at all to the schools? I assume you already know the answers.

Maybe teachers i.e. the adults are not well prepared to include students in decision making processes for questions directly concerning them; on the other hand, maybe the students are not enough persistent in their demands realizing that however they are wasting their time for nothing; maybe parent councils are not enough interested to and are waiting someone else to deal with youth participation, state or municipality; and at the end maybe the authorities at local and national level are too much focused on the trees so they cannot see the forest; but alongside all of this I still think that if the school is “the second home” of the students or place where they spend most of their time, these institutions deserve more dedication of all relevant stakeholders aiming to adjust the polices, clear defined aims and fulfilled expectations of all who function in this second home.

In the schools exist positive models of students, exist teachers working with enthusiasm and offering practical and interesting classes and offer additional opportunities for student participation through different clubs and project activities. The thing that we need is to identify them, and to encourage the others to look after them.

I thing that all these teachers, students, positive actions should be encouraged and awarded because our progress depends on them!

ZORAN ILIESKI: EMPLOYMENT THROUGH YOUTH STRATEGY

  • PDF

  • E-mail

Almost every young person, who graduated high school or university, faces with the same question every morning, and his first thought is “where can I find job or how can I leave the country”. The reasons for this state are not simple, but basically are related to the struggle for existence and dissent life of the youth. The fact is that not only the young people that graduated high school and don’t have escape of the situation are ready to live the country, but on the contrary more and more young people that finished university see their future outside the borders of Macedonia. If we look at the report “Youth unemployment – 2013” of the Joint consultative committee of the civil society, you can easily find out that this youth behavior is completely relevant. According to the same report unemployment rate among youth (aged 15 – 24) is doubled in comparison with adults, and it is 52,1% in the third quarter of 2012. If we take into consideration the fact that the highest percentage of the unemployed youth, even 71,9%, are looking for job more than one year, it is clear that the reason for the apathetic and hopeless youth lays among all of us. This state have been drag through almost for decades and it has significant influence of the overall dissatisfaction among youth, that on the other hand result to distrust in the institutions of the system, and to common thinking that they don’t have any capacities to act towards solving this biggest youth problem.

Our researches also show that young people are disappointed of the impossibility to find job that will provide dissent life. The huge unemployment rate, and as well the possibility employers to pay law salaries, forces youth to look for their exit abroad in some of the European or overseas countries. On the other hand this enables employers to manipulate with law salaries to young employees because of the fact that lot of people are able to accept the job even with law income. This phenomenon must end; the minimum salaries should rise, in order high educated young people to work for dissent income. I doubt that some of the government measures (which are not in great number) for supporting youth employment will be late. The government will have to create new mechanisms and measures, with appropriate budget, to end this youth trend. In contrary we will have more cases youth to be ready to leave, not for something else but looking for dissent life, every young person’s dream.

Maybe it will sound pessimistic, but unfortunately we are still far away of the European gates. Almost every day we communicate with our European partners, we follow the European policies and trends of their governments, and that is why I can draw a conclusion that in our country the authorities are preoccupied dealing with insignificant issues that wouldn’t change the life of the young people. Serious intervention is needed in all policies to support young people, starting with reforms in the basic and high education, improving the student’s standard, synchronization of the educational process to the needs of the labor market, specific measures for supporting and state-subsidizing of youth employment, and at the end measures for youth housing. It is crucial the Agency for youth and sports to implement methodology for youth participation in the process of determining their needs, but as well to secure serious approach by the other relevant institutions that will take responsibility for implementation of the measures adopted in new youth strategy.
