back to school, After two months of vacation, it’s time to put the school bag back on your shoulders. Nearly 1 million students return to school this Thursday 12er September, without masks and with light health protocols. This year, despite Education Minister Pap Nadiye’s promise to have “a teacher in front of every class”, there is concern about a teacher recruitment crisis. For families, the beginning of the new school year will also be under the sign of inflation, which does not spare the school either. In its 38ᵉ annual survey on the cost of going back to sixth grade, the French National Federation of Families reported a “sharp increase of 4.25% in the cost of school supplies”.
