I help out at a local lycée professionnel (probably the first time I have correctly spelt it!) and they have asked me to translate a letter to parents informing them that their son will be held in detention for une betisse.
His parents are English and dont speak French, I think the lycée are expecting more such occurences as they want to create a sort of standard form letter as there is another Polish student whose parents dont speak French, the English lad has not done anything I didnt do at his age and I dont think it is related to the difficulties he is finding in learning in French.
Anyway it was difficult for me to do on the phone, I much prefer to see the document in its entirety but hey-ho its done now but I have one lingering doubt that perhaps with some help from you good people I could have found a translation for one of the terms.
It was the job title or name if you like of the person responsible for discipline in the lycéé, IIRC it was C.P.E. or something similar, perhaps Conseilleur Principal D'éducation but their responsibilty is as I described.
Is there an equivalent position or job title in the English education system?
