Le droit à l’éducation à l’épreuve des migrations en France

Abstract : The refusal to enrol migrant children in kindergarten, or to school of unaccompanied minors over the age of sixteen, illustrates a frequent confusion between compulsory education and the right to education. This situation may be the result of political choices mainly targeting members of the Roma community, sometimes on purpose. However, it cannot be ruled out that, in some cases, this error results from a real ignorance of the law in force. In all cases, it involves serious human rights violations. No legal source limits the benefit of the right to education according to the age, the nationality, or the status of the parents, when the beneficiaries are children. Two decisions adopted by the European Committee of Social Rights in 2018, preceded by a report by the Rights Defender on School, published in 2016, invite us to analyse the obligations incumbent upon the French State to ensure the effectiveness the right to education.
