While more and more young people are warning of Student instability Demanding better social protection (including the creation of a global autonomy allowance), other voices are joining the movement, particularly on social networks. Thus, on Twitter, netizens vouch for their student experience, increasing the passing of The issue of equal opportunity.
These testimonies were published mostly in response to the tweet of a parliamentary collaborator who spoke on the subject:
As far as I’m concerned, when I was a student, my parents paid for my school fees, my transportation, and my food. No discount.
I consider myself a special person and have always struggled so that those who didn’t have them could get a study allowance.

When I was a student, although my parents were financially well off (but had a large family), I was paid to study at ÉNS. This is why I want a minimum income for students so that everyone has the same opportunity (or mine). https://t.co/hwLAADzMpK

And when I was a student I had none from my parents, only 4600 scholarships per year (FNAU, maximum registered level).
It was clearly not enough to live. You didn’t teach me the value of money, you taught me what social injustice is. https://t.co/gSCgCPnoPI

When I was a student, my parents (who are not financially well off) paid for my tuition and rent. I had to do my best for the rest, with my scholarships and the little money I was able to make by killing myself at work over the summer. https://t.co/wy6hEuER No

When I was a student, I used to spend more time working left and right than studying my classes. The MI-SE website has helped me a lot. Internship in classroom observation with a bonus for students who intend to become teachers, I find it good. https://t.co/E6qM9ly8ya

When I was a student, my mother was a cleaning lady who could barely help me. I got scholarship number 180 and ready a little equivalent in APL. At 500e of rent, I bought myself a maximum of one or two French toast per week and a packet of lidl tuna rillette. I lost 15 kg https://t.co/FkGlRHYOdt

When were you a student? I had to stop my studies because my parents couldn’t pay the tuition or room or give me money for the TR number, I had to stop my studies and go to work, we call that unequal opportunity.

When I was a student, I funded my studies. With 400€/month of scholarship and 80€ from APL…worked to pay the necessities, there was nothing superfluous.
Student income is a measure of social justice to allow access to graduate studies in good conditions. https://t.co/G2H5ntMyMX

When I was a student, my not-wealthy parents were in the middle of a divorce. I lived in 9 square meters with a small wallet that didn’t even pay the rent because it didn’t take into account the divorce ruling and it went down to 45kg for 1m73 because I had nothing to eat https://t.co/Tmd1wWwhmO
