A heavily tattooed French schoolteacher said he was prevented from teaching kindergarten after a parent complained his appearance scared their child. Sylvain Helaine, 35, said the parent of a 3-year-old student at the Docteur Morere Elementary School in Palaiseau complained their son had nightmares after seeing him. Although the boy was not in his class, Helaine said he was removed from the classroom for two months and then prohibited from teaching children under the age of 6 years old.

“When young people’s participation lags badly, issues important to them receive short shrift in the public discourse.”
