  • Ballade en éducation auditiveChantal Chaillet Damalix, Éditions du CNFEDS, 2018

Chantal Chaillet Damalix presents a modern work that opens up new horizons in the relationship between deafness and the sound environment, particularly music.

Her "Ballade en éducation auditive" (A Ballad in Hearing Education) engages the reader's curiosity and leads the young deaf person, like the reader, to a sensory discovery of his or her body, voice and environment. This original book is based on the author's own experience and testimony, with the aim of revitalizing young deaf people's interest in their sound environment. Chantal Chaillet Damalix invites the reader to focus on the human aspect and to take the paths that lead to knowledge of others.

A must-see!

  • Genesis of hierarchical educationPhilippe GENESTE, Éditions du CNFEDS, 2017

A proletarian critique of education needs to address all aspects of educational and teaching practices. To do this, we can't perpetuate the stereotypical critique of the liberal school that has prevailed since the 2000s.
To do so would be to lay a critical foundation on a phantom school. Proletarian critique works just as hard against the myth of the state school, which has a hard life in so-called progressive circles, as it does against the myth of the new individualist education. The school order links its fetishism of knowledge with the moral order and the medical-social order.

In this way, a hierarchical conception of beings, knowledge and social functions is deployed at academics , both at school and at academics . The aim is to reproduce the social division of labor. The book studies the Reaction in its school order, following the historical evolution of the education system. It is based on concrete examples taken from the day-to-day life of schools, of which the author is one of the workers: for the reality of education and teaching lies not primarily in texts, but in the day-to-day practices. This methodical, patient analysis reveals the genesis of hierarchical education.

The book can then consider the problematic of a project for educational autonomy within a framework of proletarian union autonomy. This conclusion opens the way to the future, both theoretically and practically, for an educational revolution.
