Compulsory school from 3 years

  • From the beginning of the school year 2019, school becomes mandatory from the age of 3, instead of 6 years, in order to offer all students the same chances of succeeding in their schooling. "It is important to make kindergarten a real school, where it is possible to attack the inequalities at the root and it is an essential moment of the student's journey", said Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer.

Will be concerned the first and the second degrees as well as the public and private establishments under contract.

Other measures

  • The program of duplication of classes in priority zones initiated in 2017 to combat the difficulty of school will apply from this return to all classes of CP and CE1 Rep and Rep +.
  • As part of the Poverty Plan, 100,000 French students will be involved in setting up free breakfasts at school. The establishments concerned must be part of a REP or REP + zone.
