It [the Front National] is the lone party defending a republic that is authentically French, with only one vocation: the national interest, the development of French employment, the preservation of our way of life, the development of our traditions and the defense of all French people, party leader Marine Le Pen said in a speech following the electoral victory nearly a year ago. The rise of nationalist groups across Europe in recent years has stemmed in part from a negative view refugees seeking asylum in the Western countries as they flee violence in Iraq, Syria and other parts of the Middle East and Africa. And attacks like the Nov. 13, 2015 massacreperpetrated by members of terrorist groups driving civilians out of those regions and into Europehave helped fan the flames of nativist resentment. France and the French are no longer safe, Le Pen told an audience the day after the 2015 attacks, urging officials to eradicate Islamism in the country, the New York Times reported . Another member of the Front National, Florian Philippot, said the same day that the violence by Islamic State militants in Paris really poses the question that we have been asking, that they will infiltrate the migratory flux that is arriving in Europe, according to the Times. But is there a relationship between the number of refugees in France and the number of terrorist attacks against the country?

Additionally, she noted cutting TOSA (Teacher On Special Assignment) positions is not something that has been discussed and if/when it is, staff will be involved. Another claim that has been heard is that teachers will no longer be offered single health insurance. “Health insurance is one of the growing costs.
