Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is a school on Ile Saint Louis. I don't think any of these kids will ever end up in jail, or insult a teacher, except if in the future France toughens up of white collar crime...

Oh, I understand this, but if you do it in one place, you do it everywhere, that's only fair. The better thing would be to have enough funding of school establishments to put enough assistants/surveillants in place to ensure security, and modularise the staffing levels based on need, but that costs money.

So, if you are going to go the cheap route and instead scare the spit out of impressionable young children, there's no reason the impressionable young children of the bourgeoisie should be exempted.

Plus, I'm sure the establishment is not far from Nos ancêtres les gauloises, a place known for much public disorder due to the all-you-can-drink wine. Is that place even still there? Overpriced crappy food, but the all you can drink wine made it all worth it.

(And we all know the ill effects such disorder can have on impressionable minds....)
