In a rare move, the Paris rector resigned on Friday, February 2. In the letter, he regrets the decision of the Ministry of National Education and Amélie Oudéa-Castér to suspend one of his projects, which was supposed to enable greater social diversity.

The rector of the Paris Academy announced in a letter that he is leaving his position on Friday, February 2. “Today I am leaving my position, (…) our school is plagued by doubt, and the situation still requires the mobilization of everyone”, writes Christophe Kerrero. On Wednesday, the Ministry of National Education suspended one of its projects. It foresees the closure of several preparatory classes for the next school year and the parallel opening of three classes open to vocational high school graduates.

The former rector regrets too much “social reproduction”

“Social reproduction still characterizes too much of our education system,” he explains in his letter. Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, the Minister of Education, praised “her exemplary career” in a message on the social network “a great loss”. Christophe Kerrero's resignation from this position, which he held for three and a half years, is extremely rare.
