Roland Lomenech, President of the Groupe Romand des Ecoles de Maturité, will be auditioned in January in front of the Commission parlementaire de la Science, de l’Education de et de la Culture (CSEC) in order to expose the difficulties encountered by the Swiss Maturité candidates. We hope that an action will be made in front of the Commission Suisse de Maturité, which has not listened to our requests until this day.
In the meantime, a delegation of the Association Vaudoise des Ecoles Privées (AVDEP) met with Mrs. Cesla Amarelle, State Counselor for the canton of Vaud and Chief of Formation, Youth and Culture. Amongst the mentioned topics:
- Equal rights in front of performances such as road prevention, refunding of speech therapy costs, as well as the access to some public equipment or public services sometimes refused to students of private schools.
- The possibility for private schools of the canton of Vaud to deliver the Maturité Cantonale (“internal”), like it is already the case in the German-speaking part of Switzerland and in the Canton of Geneva. Mrs. Amarelle did not make any objection at this stage and mentioned a similar case in the canton of Vaud, with the Gymnase du soir, which fills us with hope regarding this matter.
