"The French education system is a national catastrophe at every level. At the higher education level, the “grandes écoles” dominate and produce clones. The rest of the system is pretty chaotic. At the primary and secondary levels a neo-Darwinian system rewards the survival of those most capable of regurgitating what they have been forced to ingurgitate." (J-P Lehmann)
