FRANCE – Ecole Louise Michel
Louise Michel is a french elementary public school with pupils from six years old to eleven years old. There is about 230 pupils and 15 teachers (including teachers helping childrens with special needs). Our school is based in an area of the city where most of the families have social difficulties and where a lot of our pupils’ parents are out of work. Like in all french schools, children with special needs are integrated in usual classes, benefiting help from a special teacher or from an assistant in the classroom. We think that working on employability from a very early age is essential, and particularly in a school as ours, with pupils who don’t even have employability model.
