In the News (From Associated Press): “Tens of thousands of French teachers and their supporters took to the streets Tuesday for a national strike and protests over education job cuts under President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government.
“In a first, private school teachers joined the walkout with their public-sector colleagues who are angry about job cuts.
“Labor unions want to ratchet up the pressure on Sarkozy’s conservatives, who have cut public-sector jobs as a way to help reduce France’s bloated budget deficit.”
My Comment: Schools have to educate, to make a Human out of a child, and not just provide him or her with knowledge and a profession. Today, a connection with people is most important; it determines success in everything.
