Climate of tension at Lyon high school – students refuse to take a test

On Tuesday, January 26 in the Lycée La Martinière-Duchère, in the 9th arrondissement of Lyon, a teacher proposed something very trivial, namely an assessment of their skills on a subject. But the situation escalated very quickly when a large majority of students refused to be assessed.

    According to information from Lyon, the small group of students rebelled and began to attack the teacher by insulting him, but “in a foreign language” according to one of his colleagues. Then they started throwing stones at the teacher.

    According to our colleagues, the professor still managed to finish his course, but he reported his assault shortly after and decided to file a complaint in view of the seriousness of the facts. A climate of tension in a generally deleterious atmosphere has been noted by all the teaching staff. They decided to support their colleague with a strong gesture by calling for a strike on Thursday, January 28. According to Lyon, one of the teachers anonymously said “she felt it was important to take joint action” because the attacks have multiplied at Martinière-Duchère.

    The emptied fire extinguishers, the glue in the locks and the firecrackers thrown at the establishment are but a few examples. “It has become a powder keg,” said the professor questioned. She added distraughtly: “It’s the straw that broke the camel’s back, it’s been like this since the beginning of the year – we have suffered from a deleterious climate.” The teachers also denounced the fact that the problems related to the immigrant district have now reached the school, and they decried the lack of support from their hierarchy and a certain “contempt”.

    French students have created a group on social networks to denounce violence in the high school after one incident where youngsters with an immigration background were waiting outside with baseball bats.
