French teacher strike tests government's reform mettle| Reuters

PARIS Teachers go on strike across France on Tuesday, testing President Francois Hollande's resolve to push through reforms against strong opposition to measures his government says will improve the creaking school system. School reform is a sensitive subject in a country that prides itself on equal access to education, and the plan to revamp secondary teaching is opposed by a majority of citizens, the conservative opposition and even parts of the ruling left. The plan is to give schools more leeway on what they teach, to promote inter-disciplinary learning and counter the elitism that backers of the reform say poorly serves most children #Sports #United States #Technology #Middle East #Copyright #Latin America #lifestyle #university
