France's public school system: Caught in a downward spiral?

With less than two weeks to go until the first round of France's presidential election, today's FOCUS takes a look at the state of the country's public schools. We spoke to teachers about literacy issues, overcrowded classrooms, a lack of discipline, constant changes to the curriculum and more.


A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Aline Schmidt.
