Schools deserve true ambition !', on January 23, 2013, in Paris, as they and other teachers take part in a nationwide strike and protest action against a proposed reform to increase the class time of primary school students. The strike and rally was called by French educational trade unions to protest a reform proposition by France's Education Minister, planned for the 2013-2014 schoolyear, which foresees an increase of class time in primary schools to 4.5 days a week and would affect both students and teachers.
