How do you say “Catch 22” in French?

The rallying cry? "Replace teachers who are absent!"



In France, students currently lose ONE YEAR of school due to absent teachers who are not replaced.



National Education' chronic inability to perform this basic task of administration has poisoned relations between schools and parents for… Continue
