Sacred Education. For once, almost all presidential candidates could relate to this imperative. Everyone in their own way, of course. But this is not the time to cut back on the national education budget. Even Valérie Pécresse, the candidate proposing to ax most civil servant posts, suggests hiring 10,000 teachers during her five-year term if she should be elected.
