A local paper, the Vlan, is doing a survey ("sondage") about the infamous school inscription madness (see previous rantings about this here, for starters). It asks, "Has your child been the victim of the inscription procedure?"
As of this posting, results were....
Oui, on attend toujours une place!
(Yes, we are still waiting for a place!) - 39%
Oui, nous avons servi de cobaye
(Yes, we were used as guinea pigs) - 29%
Non, mais nous avons échappé de peu au cauchemar
(No, but we escaped with little from this nightmare) - 17%
Non, notre enfant est inscrit dans l’école de notre choix
(No, our child is signed up at the school of our choice) - 13%
Elsewhere, I have it on reasonable though unofficially-confirmed authority that there are now 1000 students without a school, and 750 multiple inscriptions. That leaves a gap of 250, but that makes sense because there are probably some really crap schools that have places left.
It is looking better for us -- our latest stats are at the bottom of this post.
