SPECIAL NEEDS ASSISTANTS, A DEAD END PROFESSION

At the start of 2017 school year, about 164.000 students were taking care of by Special Needs Assistants (SNA), according to the secretary of state in charge of disabled people. But we do not really know how many teachers were helped by those staffs. The job is completely different, but the contract is the same. Caroline Deniau, 33 years old, take care of a nearly blind History and Geography teacher in a middle school of Aix-en-Provence, in France. She multiplies tasks without any real recognition of her actual work.
