How to Manage the French Education System:
DESCRIPTION: “Mme Créneguy will explain how the French system works from primaire through Lycée, some ‘problems’ that gifted children encounter in the traditional system; ideal grades for skipping/grade acceleration and some options your child may have outside of the ‘classical’ track for entering and succeeding in Lycée. This is a very informal talk that is generally aimed at helping parents manage the French system by understanding how it’s structured and opportunities to make it work for your child from Mme Créneguy's experience. With your RSVP, please see below space for your questions to be submitted ahead of time, with the ages and grades of your children. This will help us understand the needs of the participants. General information on the French system can be found at this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_in_France. Also for helpful material, see publications by AAWE: http://aaweparis.org/pages/index.html. The French Government's 'language' on the giftedness can be found here: http://www.afep-asso.fr/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=72&Itemid=78
