Notably that of Shemseddine, this 15-year-old student beaten to death in Viry-Châtillon in Essonne and that of Samara, 13 years old, severely beaten in Montpellier. Other proposals have been put forward such as the creation of a mobile national security team made up of principals, psychologists or inspectors. Prime Minister Gabriel Attal, for his part, proposed establishing disciplinary councils from primary school.
