@French Ppruners: why does Macron shut down ENA?

What is the intended consequence of shutting down elite school ENA? Is it really for more fairness? Or a disguised cut in public spending? Or does ENA produce a nationally oriented elite that may resist some of his plans?

Trying to understand this. Itís his own alma mater, he probably has no problem with elitism and power at all, so why would he abolish an elite school? What does ENA stand for that he opposes?

For those going English language/perspective article.


Seen from the POV of an immigrant to France with kids in higher education here main reasons look like:

1. Political: a sop to the what remains of the gilets jaune movement, also an effort to make entry to the top jobs look less elitist.
2. Financial: There's a squeeze on spending on higher education in France...

I reckon ultimately it'll end up being reorganised rather then being scrapped.

Another of the great changes planned by M Macron ... as well as putting all Baccalaureate courses and resources on line and getting rid of books completely ... with free lap tops to all students, reintroduction of national service, and .... well goodness knows what he's dreamed up for UK citizens resident in France!

After Brexit, we are likely to be pretty low on the totem pole so probably by re-inviting the Russians to occupy the high-end and push out the Brits "a la Cyprus". (Those who have not left already)
