Listen up, World Leaders!

Shortly after his coronation, Louis XVI visited Louis-le-Grand school. Maximilien Robespierre, then 17 years old, had been chosen out of five hundred pupils to deliver a speech to welcome the king. On the day of speech, Robespierre and the crowd waited for the king and queen for several hours in the rain. Upon arrival, the royal couple remained in their coach for the ceremony and immediately left thereafter. Later, Robespierre would be one of those who would eventually work towards the death of the king.

This is what happens when you snub your students.
(cf Maximilien Robespierre)
