This represents nearly one in four of the 4,300 high schools across France.

Meanwhile, French university students body UNEF are giving a figure of 69 for the number of universities now 'disturbed' by events.

'Disturbed' may mean full occupation by students of the campus, blockades, strike, partial occupation or that the university authorities have chosen to shut the campus on grounds of safety, such as at the Sorbonne in Paris.
