We are surprised and sorry to discover that in recent years, school directors from various parts of the world have been trying to make Freinet's name a national label that gives them the right to control the productions of their colleagues as well as Royalties.
FIMEM strongly opposes this process:
Freinet's name belongs to his own family and they alone can decide how to use it .. and especially ..
Freinet himself has always opposed the labelling of his "pedagogy", when absolutely contrary to the fundamental principles he has always defended from cooperation and collaboration.
We invite the national movements of FIMEM to publicly oppose these attempts to capture the name
