France's minister of education says the government has prepared lessons
that could be broadcast on television and radio in case schools are
shut down by outbreaks of swine flu.
The minister, Luc Chatel, announced Wednesday that the lessons were prepared by distance learning authorities. He said that no closures are currently scheduled, but flu-related changes will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
