PARIS - Most primary schools in Paris shut down Tuesday as teachers went on strike over the Socialist government’s plans to make children attend classes five days a week, instead of the current four.
President Francois Hollande promised as part of his election campaign last year to add a half day of classes on Wednesday - currently a day off - and shorten the school day for the rest of the week.
His argument was that French kids’ education was suffering because they had one of the shortest school years in Europe but the longest school day. (via French teachers strike over having to work five-day week)
