World Forestry: Forestry Education in France
Abstract:Forestry education in France is largely dominated by the civil service, which is by far the largest forestry employer as well as the main supplier of instructors. The system is an elitist one: Foresters obtain high positions largely on the basis of their education. Forest industry is not an important employer of forestry graduates and therefore has little to say about the educational program. Nor do private landowners or consultants bear any influence on forestry curricula. Elitism may be a less effective educational policy than the more democratic system in the United States.
