Good News Of The Day
For anyone unfamiliar with it, the French school schedule is in-sane. In primary school, the kids have Wednesdays off and morning classes every other Saturday. Later on, it's morning classes every Saturday. Which means that working parents have to cover for childcare one day a week, and can forget about sleeping in Saturday mornings until the kids are old enough to fend for themselves.
Luckily, all that will change as of next year, when Saturday classes will be eliminated for primary schools. And it's a safe bet the same will be true for secondary schools by the time the Lil' Feller has become the Not So Lil' Feller. As they say here in Paris, Yes!
