Ministry of National Education (France)

The Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, or "Ministry of National Education", as the title has changed no small number of times in the course of the Fifth Republic is the Government of France cabinet member charged with running France's public educational system and with the supervision of agreements and authorisations for private teaching organisations. The Ministry's headquarters is located in the 18th century Hôtel de Rochechouart on the rue de Grenelle in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. Given that National Education is France's largest employer, employs more than half of the French state civil servants, the position is traditionally a strategic one; the current minister is Jean-Michel Blanquer. A governmental position overseeing public education was first created in France in 1802. Following the various regime changes in France in the first decades of the 19th century, the position changed official status and name a number of times before the position of Minister of Public Instruction was created in 1828.

For much of its history, the position was combined with that of Minister of Public Worship, who dealt with issues related to the Roman Catholic Church, except in instances where the Minister of Public Instruction was a Protestant. The position has occasionally been combined with Minister of Sports and Minister of Youth Affairs. In 1932, the office's title was changed to Minister of National Education, although it was changed back in 1940–1941, was renamed Minister of Education during the Presidency of Valéry Giscard d'Estaing. In 1975, it created the Comité d'études sur les formations d'ingénieurs which studies the training and job placement of engineers in France.

The Honest Whore

The Honest Whore is an early Jacobean city comedy, written in two parts. The plays were acted by the Admiral's Men; the Honest Whore, Part 1 was entered into the Stationers' Register on 9 November 1604. Subsequent quartos of the popular play appeared in 1605, 1606, 1616. Q6 was issued in 1635, printed by Nicholas Okes for the bookseller Richard Collins. Scholars have debated the extent of Middleton's contribution to Part 1. David Lake's analysis of the play gives most of it to Dekker, with Middleton's contribution strongest in Act I and the first scene in Act III, with sporadic input elsewhere; the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography reports, under Thomas Middleton, that Part I was performed outside at the Fortune Theatre by Prince Henry's Men. This London premier in 1604 of The Honest Whore, Part I is verified in the Annuals of English Drama. Gaspero Trebazzi, the Duke of Milan Infelice, daughter to the Duke Hippolito, young man in love with Infelice Matteo, Hippolito's friend Bellafront, the honest whore Castruccio, Pioratto and Sinezi, gallants Doctor Benedict Candido, a linen-draper Viola, Candido's Wife George, journeyman to Candido Fustigo, brother to Candido's Wife Two apprentices to Candido Roger, servant to Bellafront Mistress Fingerlock, a woman who maintains a brothel Crambo and Poh, bravoes Hippolito's servant Doctor Benedict's servant Porter Father Anselmo Sweeper Three Madmen Officers, Gentlemen Scene 1: The streets of Milan, a funeral procession The play begins with a funeral procession for the Duke of Milan's daughter, Infelice.

The procession is attended by several others. Infelice's former lover, Hippolito enters. Upset, he insists that Infelice is not dead and demands to see the body, his friend Matteo tries to calm him down. The procession exits, but the Duke and Matteo stay behind; the Duke commends Matteo's efforts to control exits. Hippolito continues raging, he swears. Matteo scoffs at his friend's oath and predicts that Hippolito will forget about Infelice and visit a brothel within the next ten days. Scene 2: Outside Candido's home Fustigo has just returned from sea, he is broke, he sends a porter to fetch his sister, who has married Candido, a wealthy linen-draper. Viola enters. Fustigo begs her to give him some money and Viola agrees to help him out on condition that he do a service for her in return, she explains that, although she is satisfied in her marriage, her husband, Candido, is even-tempered to a fault. Nothing can move him to anger, her greatest wish is to see her husband throw an explosive fit. With this goal in mind, she instructs Fustigo to pose as a "wide-mouthed swaggerer" and attempt to annoy Candido by stealing things, kissing Viola, etc.

Fustigo agrees to go along with the plan. Viola twice reminds Fustigo that he must return any items he might steal during the course of the ruse. Scene 3: A private chamber in the Duke's castle The Duke orders his servants to lock all the doors and warns them not to utter a word of what they are about to see, it is soon revealed that—as Hippolito had predicted—Infelice is not dead. As part of a scheme to break up her romance with Hippolito, the Duke ordered Doctor Benedict to give Infelice a drug that created a temporary appearance of death; the Doctor assure the Duke. A curtain is pulled back, Infelice's body is revealed. Infelice awakens; the Duke tells her that she fell sick for several days after a messenger announced news of Hippolito's death. Infelice accuses her father of murdering Hippolito. Brushing these accusations aside, the Duke tells Infelice that she will be sent to Bergamo to mourn and recuperate in peace. Infelice exits; the Duke wishes aloud that Hippolito were dead. The Doctor tells him that he is friends with Hippolito and could poison him quite so the Duke orders the Doctor to carry this out.

Scene 4: Outside Candido's shop Castruccio tells Fluello and Pioratto that he has devised a scheme that will send the "monstrously patient" Candido into a fit of temper. Pioratto says that it would take more than a simple jest to vex the immovable Candido, Castruccio offers a 100-ducat wager that his scheme will work and Pioratto accepts the bet. Scene 5: Candido's shop The gallants Castruccio and Pioratto enter Candido's shop. Candido's apprentice George shows them various garments and fabrics, but they reject everything they see as unfit. Candido patiently describes the quality of his wares. Castruccio says. Candido protests. Castruccio threatens to leave. Candido agrees to give him. Castruccio insists that his bit of fabric should be cut out from the middle of the roll, rather than from the corner. Candido patiently complies with Castruccio's request. Viola grumbles about the stupidity of Candido's patience. Candido encourages the gallants to ignore his wife's complaints. Whispering, Pioratto tells Castruccio.

Fluello marvels at Candido's amazing patience. Candido explains that it is prudent business practice to satisfy a customer's demands—even if it means taking a loss every once in a while. To further demonstrate his goodwill, Candido orders some wine and drinks to t
