The integration of children into society is the primary goal of primary schools. To achieve this goal, the state establishes a common curriculum. But what do we learn in primary school?

School programs

Primary school aims to impart skills and share good values with children. In order to standardize learning, the 2005 orientation law has also established a common base of knowledge. The latter must obviously be mastered during the various stages of primary education. Throughout elementary school, students acquire the ability to read, write and count. These learnings help to broaden one's awareness of time, space and the world.

The child is gradually becoming aware of civic values, the uses of computers, the diversity of languages. All this knowledge opens his mind to the world today. In addition, national programs establish the skills and knowledge for each teaching. Schooling is also structured in cycles, in this case the cycle of fundamental learning (CP and CE1) and the cycle of in-depth studies (CE2, CM1 and CM2).

Assessments during primary school

Evaluations are crucial for estimating the assimilative capacity of students. In addition to institutional reviews, the ministry also has two evaluations. The first is done at CE1 to estimate the child's reading, writing and calculating abilities. The second assessment is started in CM2 to estimate knowledge in grammar and mathematics before entering college. If the child has difficulties during his assessments, the teacher proposes a specific program.

In addition, students are required to assimilate the indispensable basic elements of language and numeracy. Obviously, the multiplication of faults leads to a penalization of the child. In addition, these evaluations tend to optimize the effectiveness of learning. These examinations are also designed to estimate the student's skills and difficulties in order to help him progress. Moreover, the mastery of the common knowledge base is examined in the curricula.

Success factors in primary school

School success in primary school is based on several criteria. The know-how and skill assessment of the student is the first factor. Obviously, this knowledge revolves primarily around reading and writing. Then, the family occupies a fundamental place in the success of the education of the children. The degree of parental involvement, the perception of schooling and the income of the family influence the educational path of the child.

In addition, school plays a fundamental role in academic success. Indeed, the latter is based on the qualities of infrastructure. However, some institutions in disadvantaged regions, particularly in Tunisia, suffer from dropping out of school because of the state of the infrastructure. Fortunately, the Hédi Bouchamaoui Foundation and entrepreneur Tarek Bouchamaoui have renovated 12 schools in Gabès, Tunisia. Tarek Bouchamaoui has also initiated these renovations to encourage school enrollment and academic success.
