France: 'Just shameful' — Education workers take to the streets of Paris

Hundreds of education workers took to the streets of Paris on Thursday, to protest against the precariousness of the French educational system and the part-time jobs within public schools. The protesters marched through the streets of the French capital with banners while chanting slogans, before reaching the Ministry of Education where a police cordon blocked their entrance. For Anne-Sophie... Еще Beau, history teacher in a Parisian high school, the way the state treats part-time workers (people under a CDI contract) is «just shameful,» since «national education is completely dependent on part-time workers, without them, nothing would work.» «Macron has abolished the contract of unique insertion, which would allow many school-aged schoolchildren to find a job,» said Jerome, an accompanying teacher of children with disabilities. He added that the academies take advantage of part-time workers and «are doing what they want right now.» The protesters demand better salaries, bigger manpower, full recognition of educational functions, and the guarantee of renewal for their contracts. This protest comes after a long string of anti-Macron protests from the education sector in France.
