Y a-t-il des élèves musulmans ?

Abstract : Are there Muslim pupils in French schools? this question does not have a place in the managerial approach of national education current reform. Neither does it in French secularist ethos. Moreover, it is uncomfortable because it arouses Islam social categorization whilst education is supposed to be meritocratic. But this question has to be asked if one is to take seriously the cognitive and civic missions of public education. For it matters a lot for Muslims to be accepted as such. And it matters that others be educated to accept Muslims. This determines the capacity of each other to make a common polity, while formal silence maintains a fantastical view of Muslims as threatening outsiders, even in schools.
