French Education Minister Vincent Peillon announced on Wednesday the recruitment of additional 10,000 teachers in secondary schools to reinforce security and other services.
"There will be more 10,000 jobs ... specifically in the secondary schools to ensure more serenity, security and higher number of adults in our schools," he told the local broadcaster Europe1.
"We want to hire those who have a license, BTS and are unemployed or even want to continue their studies," he detailed.
Peillon added the contracts could be renewed and will last between ten months and two years.
Reversing Former President Nicolas Sarkozy policy that cut off jobs for 80,000 educational workers, the Socialist head of State Francois Hollande wants to create 60,000 new jobs in education during his five-year mandate as part of plan to enhance training and assistance to poorly qualified yougesters.
In the right camp, the government's plan will force the government already under fire, to squeeze further state's expenditure in a context of public discontent.
"It's and old fantasy of the left who believes that the effectiveness of the education system depends only on the number of jobs," Benoist Apparu, a UMP former minister said.
"These 10,000 jobs will increase the deficit without improving results in schools," he told Europe1.
