More bad news for children and parents who expected more academic support this year

The provision of aid for children in difficulty School training with the support of teachers, planned for this year, will not be possible as it stands.

So that children do not drop out at a later age. school and for each student to finish their school year with the necessary learning outcomes, more monitoring must be put in place. This diagnosis is shared à both by teachers, teaching professionals and by the Ministry of National Education.

Furthermore, the survey reveals that in 58% of middle and high schools in France, at least one teacher was missing. back to school.
