L'Europe à bonne école : étude comparative d'établissements scolaires du premier degré publics et privés dans le département du Finistère

Abstract : Education for European citizenship: What conditions for its realization? Even if they do not make the most of it, the school curricula integrate Europe into the different curricula of both primary and secondary education. On the ground, however, the achievements are very diverse: some schools and high schools ignore Europe in the apprenticeships, while others value it to the point of claiming it in their project of establishment. Thus, from a geographical approach to a linguistic vector, from a historical epic to the deciphering of European construction, many and various practices to varying degrees contribute to the education of European citizenship. The following questions are addressed: what happens upstream of these antagonistic situations? Where and by whom are decisions made? What or who are they dependent on? Would some schools and teachers, be more in favor of this civic education than opposed to it? Would teaching Europe a political fact? Is there a specific European culture? The study then analyses both interviews with professional and institutional actors from both the public and the private sectors. The study also links the different factors that promote European citizenship education that develops itself as a "culture bubble". Education for European citizenship thus corresponds to a political educational act that depends on the personal and professional path of the teacher, but also on the administrative and pedagogical structure of his/her school. From an articulation between all these factors, present or absent, results a construction strongly influenced by the context.
