Source: 20minutes

The Minister of National Education and Youth, Jean-Michel Blanquer, has announced on Thursday, December 20, that the ministry is launching a new platform for teachers which will enable them to report racist and antisemitism incidents.

By this direct and simple way of reporting, support will be provided within 24 hours and prompt responses will be offered. The academic teams “secularity and religious facts”, whose competence is thus extended to the fight against racism and antisemitism, can be mobilized. They may, if necessary, visit institutions, provide resources, or support institutions in the long term.

Since the start of the academic year, 330 cases, which were reported on this platform led to the intervention of an academic team and 40 required the visit of the national team.
