The overtime hours targeted concern teachers who provide refresher courses during holidays, support or preparation for exams, short-term replacements or even extra work. rsquo;homework help in college.

Change from this Thursday

Such a measure was not appreciated by teachers and unions, who did not hide their anger while many students were preparing for the baccalaureate or college certificate exams , the Ministry of Education has decided to backtrack.

Faced with this anger, "The Prime Minister and the Minister of National Education and Youth hoped that educational establishments would continue to have access to means to carry out their missions", as noted Le Monde. Thus, from this Thursday, "the academies will recover the budgetary resources initially notified in order to continue the allocation of overtime in establishments", said Nicole Belloubet.
