Seeing as la rentrée des classes (the start of the school year which takes place on Monday, September 2 in France) is just around the corner, this week’s photo shows a group of students warming up for their gym class in 1936. In 1957, coeducation was implemented in French primary schools. The Sorbonne opened admission to girls in 1860, however mixed-sex education wasn’t mandatory for all French universities until 1975.
