France-wide protest against new evaluation system, layoffs

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Jan. 31, 2012) – Teachers in French Polynesia are to go on strike today as part of a France-wide protest action against education reforms and cuts.

Radio reports say members of one teacher union will rally outside the French High Commission in Tahiti.

The action is against a new job evaluation system and to push for a withdrawal of the planned elimination of 14,000 jobs at the end of this school year.

The protest is to go ahead in 101 departments and overseas territories.
