It was a law?

The State had a law which required teachers to stress the positive aspects of French Colonialism?

Oh, and regarding this add-on subject of Slavery Remembance Day in the BBC story:

"France has set an example by being the first country in the world - and still the only one today - to recognise slavery as a crime against humanity. I have decided to establish a day of remembrance in France."
Maybe they should have two remembrance days - one to remember they abolished it in 1794 and another to remember they had to abolish it again in 1848.
