François Hollande plans to shake up education system
It's all change in the classroom, as François Hollande's plans to change the education system make the headlines. Immigration is next on the agenda, with a new report shedding light on just how integrated France’s immigrants feel. And Dominique Strauss-Kahn is back in the papers, with a tell-all interview.
Libération praises Hollande’s attempt to fix the education system at its very foundation, in a glowing editorial.
Le Monde points out the potential pitfalls when it comes to overhauling the curriculum, timetables and homework in primary schools.
Le Figaro boils down the data from an INSEE report and gives us a snapshot of immigration in France today.
Le Parisien puts a positive spin on these findings, saying 9 out of 10 second generation immigrants “feel French” and that they enjoy some social mobility, with more qualifications than their parents.
But Libération casts a cynical eye over this study, pointing out that even French nationals with immigrant parents still face discrimination.
Finally, he’s back in the headlines: Dominique Strauss-Kahn gives an interview to Le Point magazine, and Le Parisien gives us a preview.
