St JOHN-BAPTIST-DE-LA-SALLE

Christian Saint

Patron Saint of Principals and School Teachers

Educational Reformer in France.

Asked to help open a school for poor boys, he gave more than was bargained for.

He made many educational reforms such as abolishing teaching in Latin. He also introduced group classes and teacher-training schemes.
