MON OEIL: Robert Doisneau's Eye VS Life's Photo of Sepah Danesh Classroom

I came across a photo in LIFE Magazine of a classroom full of kids looking at a spot pointed by their teacher ( a soldier of the Pahlavi Era education corps aka Sepah Danesh) and found it looked familiar to some of Robert Doisneau's famous classroom photos.

French photographer Robert Doisneau (1912-1994):

Robert Doisneau, one of France's most popular and prolific reportage photographers, is known for his modest, playful, and ironic images of amusing juxtapositions, mingling social classes, and eccentrics in contemporary Paris streets and cafes. Influenced by the work of Kertesz, Atget, and Cartier-Bresson, in over 20 books Doisneau has presented a charming vision of human frailty and life as a series of quiet, incongruous moments. He has written: "The marvels of daily life are exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street."
