Teachers marched numerous against the pension reform on Thursday. Jean-Michel Blanquer, the Minister of Education, spoke of "significant mobilization" with nearly one in two teachers on strike. The FSU union evokes an "unprecedented" social movement. But, no one is able to anticipate the movement for the days to come. Thursday, the Ministry of Education was not able to give forecasts or even trends for the day of Friday.

The situation is identical in most academies, except in Paris. The rectorate refers to 155 schools with more than 25% strikers potentially closed. On the other hand, the figure is 200 closed schools. Most unions in primary and secondary schools do not call for renewal but support strikers wherever they are. According to them, this Friday, the mobilization will be smaller.
A next day of mobilization on December 10?
It remains difficult to know precise figures because, in the primary, the strikers have given an unlimited notice. They have no obligation to declare whether they renew their strike or not, so it is impossible to know if they come to work. In secondary school, it is impossible to know because strikers do not have the obligation to declare themselves.
Regarding the continuation of the movement next week, an inter-union meets Friday at 9 am to talk about it. The track of a new day of mobilization Wednesday, December 10 will be under discussion.
