A primary school in southern France was in shock Friday after a teacher was stabbed to death in front of her young pupils by the mother of one of its students.Officials said the mother showed up in the classroom with a knife and stabbed the teacher, Fabienne Terral-Calmes, a mother of two young girls, in front of her horrified pupils.Touring the school, Hamon said more needed to be done to protect institutions and teachers.It is still extremely rare for teachers in France to be killed in connection with their work, with only four known cases in the last 30 years.In October 2012 a father was sentenced to three years in prison, with 18 months suspended, for having struck a Lyon gym teacher several times with a truncheon after entering the school gymnasium to complain of his daughter being excluded from a basketball game.
