‘There are skilled pedagogues, teachers who love their students and whose personality is a lesson in itself, school headmasters struggling every day until they are exhausted, concerned parents, inspiring students. We will not speak of them.’

Having dissected, analysed and desecrated spelling, Arnaud Hoedt and Jérôme Piron tackle the school system. They take a naive but documented look at its foundations, values and challenges. In 2021 and 2022, they proposed a draft in XS format. Now it is time for a performance in all of its glory.

Arnaud Hoedt est debout et tient un carton avec une flèche en mains. Derrière lui, assis à un banc d'école, se trouve Jérôme Piron.
Zoom sur Jérôme Piron. Derrière lui, on devine Arnaud Hoedt
