#PasDeVague: French teachers break silence on ‘abuse’ by students

French teachers have revealed stories of bullying by students after a video showed a teen pointing a fake gun at his teacher in a Paris suburb. Hundreds on Twitter ironically used #PasDeVague (“Don’t Make Waves”) to highlight their alleged abuse. The BBC reports.

Most said they had received no support after reporting threats, insults, harassment and violence.

The move came after his teacher complained about the incident at the high school in Créteil.

Described in French media as the #MeToo movement of the nation’s public education sector, teachers have unleashed a wave of thousands of tweets.

Another teacher spoke of a colleague who received death threats signed by an entire class of students. “The support? Nought.”
