We the M.A.’s


M.A. : Management Administration, one of the least requested options available in professional high schools.

So, no...most of the students in their junior year of M.A. at the André Malraux high school of Béthune did not choose this programme. And yet, in this class, something's going on. With the support of their teachers, Manon, Dylan, François-Joseph, Marianne and the others are working on acquiring professional skills and codes, but also on gaining greater self-confidence after an often chaotic academic career. Nothing is easy, but with considerable effort, they manage to reconnect with their capacity to reflect on the world around them and imagine a future for themselves.
