Having had the opportunity to benefit from excellent training, it was essential for me that others also benefit from it. Therefore, supporting the quality of education and training provided in schools at a time when schools must be self-financing and inclusive actions to reach all talents regardless of the social category to which they belong is quickly emerged as an unavoidable duty. We must keep our school in a position of excellence and at the centre of social debate and of the answers to be provided.
