In my opinion the French version seriously 
weakens the textual support for the 
Hilferding/Okishio/Rowthorn "whose production has 
cost more labour" - that is the "education cost" 
solution to the labour reduction problem.

Why do you think that?
There is no coherent argument in the French edition against Hilferdings

Whether Hilferding was right or wrong stands on the merits of
Hilferding's argument not on what Marx said, unless Marx makes a
specific rebutall of the idea that the labour cost of educating workers
enters into the labour cost of what these workers themselves produce. As
far as I can see Marx makes no such contrary argument.
