Before getting to the heart of the matter, Muriel Abadie, vice-president of the Region in charge of tourism, evokes “a particularly difficult return to school for the Gers due to the drop in purchasing power, events in Ukraine, the inflation, unjust social reforms. We must try to work in favor of people whose difficulties we know both among young people and their families so that they can live with dignity. We have to help them so that each of them can find their place in the world of work, we are doing this with the Hiring Pact. Finally we have the cheapest back-to-school in France with 500 € in aid”.
The amount invested for each high school student is €1,533

He also recalls that 100% of public high schools are labeled digital, that 100% of high school students have “loRDi”, that 100% of youth cards are validated and finally the amount invested for each high school student is €1,533.
