L’école, une ressource pour les populations migrantes. Regards croisés de l’institution et des parents d’élèves dans le centre-ville de Marseille

Abstract : This paper analyses the role of primary school in working class areas where many recent migrants and newcomers live. It states the findings of a field-research that was conducted between 2015 and 2017 in Marseilles disadvantaged city centre, which hosts many migrant and/or precarious families. Based on semi-structured interviews that were carried out with parents, school directors, institutions and associations, the paper is a reflection on school as a resource and as a reason to settle in for the families. It deals with how education professionals adjust to this peculiar public of newcomers, between adaptation and adjustment. Exceeding its educational function, school becomes a space of multiple resources for both children and parents, playing a role of mediation and linking the migrants to the city, favoring the installation and anchoring of families.
