Appeal to Draghi: ‘President remains’. The school’s voices

The open letter launched by Tuttoscuola (read it here) in a few hours has reached thousands of adhesions. Associations, unions, experts, teachers and principals they ask Draghi to stay. Among the signatories are also many authoritative representatives of trade unions, associations, experts in the education sector and many teachers and school leaders, but also parents and grandparents. The document is still open for other subscriptions (

We repeat that not all government elections can be shared and that Tuttoscuola e.g. was the first to criticize the lack of introduction of teachers’ careers, but the fact is that the moment our country is experiencing is really difficult and that we want further instability to be avoided.

“Dear President Draghi, I understand your great discomfort at having to culturally (and politically) oppose those who sit in Parliament today – a significant percentage of members are there without any demands – and who instead deserve to sit in other less institutional places, but certainly useful! Do not leave the ship in this stormy sea, get rid of IRRESPONSIBILITY and take the government of the Italian ship back and bring it to a safe harbor.

President Draghi will stay! “
Ambrosina Putaturo, teacher
