"Conversations in the shade of the plane tree» To the readers of this blog … You may have noticed that it was not powered for several months. I owe you an explanation. In fact, I was very busy. And I am pleased to officially announce today the reason for this absence with the release of the new book, "Conversations in the shade of the plane tree." This is a book of interviews with Jean-Michel Blanquer. The first meeting was held Thursday, October 19 at 9:30 am.

Thank you for this new editor for giving us the opportunity to get out this book at this critical time of year. I hope this book will find a wide audience as the reforms and the action of the minister!
