France will ban shopping for the good? The idea, which appears regularly, could be voted this time in the National Assembly in the coming weeks. Members of Parliament will be asked to vote on the Law Against Ordinary Educational Violence (VEO) submitted by MP MoDem, Maud Petit on November 29.
Slipping, slapping, threatening, shouting or humiliating remarks are some of the activities that are often tolerated today in education for children in 54 countries, and perhaps soon in France. The Parisian, who had access to the account of a centrist deputy, reports that hearings in the Legal Commission began on Thursday.
"Children have the right to education without violence, holders of parental authority can not use degrading means like physical and verbal violence, punishment or corporal punishment, moral suffering". This is especially written in this text.
The idea is that parents understand that you can not educate your child through violence. This measure, educational, will not be accompanied by criminal sanctions, and the rule is "exclusively of nature" civic explanation of the diary. This text can therefore be inserted into Article 371-1 of the Civil Code on Parental Jurisdiction – "a set of rights and duties for which the best interests of the child are the purpose".
"Several members of the government voted in favor of this ban"
Although the Criminal Law prohibits any form of physical violence against children, the case-law allows "the right to correction", which was last recognized in 2014. In France, many attempts to regulate VEO have failed.
In December 2016, an amendment amending the Civil Code was adopted, but from the end of January 2017 it was directed by the Constitutional Council for procedural reasons. In February last year, Maud Petit proposed Francois-Michel Lambert's proposal but was not put on the agenda. Finally, the amendment introduced by Laurence Rossignol (PS) in July was rejected. He planned to ban these practices.
Maud Petit now said "optimistic," saying that "several members of the government voted in favor of this ban." According to her, violence in education often leads to abuse.
