La formation des instituteurs sous Vichy : l'exemple de l'IFP d'Angers

Abstract : This dissertation considers changes in teacher training during different French regimes and governments, with a particular focus on the period from June 1940 to August 1944. The Maréchal Pétain regime, after coming to power, abolished the existing "Normal Schools" in favour of new professional training consistent with the new values of the National Revolution. Initial, temporary measures were put in place until new "Training Institutes" could be created under a new law, which came into force on 15th August 1941. This law also changed the syllabus of the training programme. Locally, in Angers, the new institute was a transfer of the Vannes institute, and it met with resistance. Whilst the director complied with most of the official requirements, there were signs that he wished to continue the programme of the Ecoles Normales. This particular context, of resistance and repression, made studying difficult for the trainee teachers. After the liberation of France, the Instituts de Formation Professionnelle disappeared and the Ecoles Normales returned.
