Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Head Start
French Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer and Junior Health and Solidarity Minister Christelle Dubos on Tuesday announced €6 million in initial funding for the free breakfast programme, which will be put in place at public schools that have been identified as "priority education network" (réseau d'éducation prioritaire or REP) establishments as well as in some poor urban neighbourhoods and rural areas.
A pilot programme was launched earlier this month in eight areas where schools are already working to serve students a healthy, free meal in the morning: Amiens, the overseas territory of La Réunion, Lille, Montpellier, Nantes, Reims, Toulouse andVersailles. The programme will be expanded nationwide in the fall, and is expected to provide breakfast to as many as 100,000 schoolchildren once fully operational.
