L'imputation de caractéristiques ethniques dans l'encadrement de la vie scolaire

Abstract : Educational researches, up to now, have been focussing on the fact that taking account of ethnicity was a deviant process in regard of the Republican and secular model of the French school. Using an enquiry led in a secondary school considered as raising acute problems, the author analysed several situations in which the members of the team managing the school life are driven to build ethnic categorizations and mobilize ethnic stereotypes. According to the author, these phenomenons are not accuring in spite of the official principle of blindness to ethnic differences, but on the contrary because of a will to preserve the Republican frame of the school while coping with the crisis situation characteristic of suburban areas. As ethnicity is promoted as a ressource in order to face threats against the institutional order, educational actors are nevertheless aiming at keeping and legitimizing a non-ethnic definition of the schooling process.
