There will be no classes this Thursday morning at Mahatma Gandhi College in Fougères (Ille-et-Vilaine). This decision by the teaching community follows the attack on Tuesday of the principal of the establishment by the mother of a student. During a meeting about his daughter, in third grade, the individual would have pushed the director of the establishment into his office. The principal then allegedly fell and hit her head against a radiator, reports France Bleu Armorique. Already known to her police services, the mother of the family was arrested and placed in police custody. A complaint has been filed.
In a press release, the SNES-FSU union reacted, expressing “its solidarity” with regard to the director. “Violence in personal relationships within a school is unacceptable,” protested the union. President of the Ille-et-Vilaine department council, Jean-Luc Chenut also “condemned in the strongest terms this unacceptable act of violence”.
