ESPERANCE BANLIEUES, A PRAGMATIC SCHOOL MODEL
The Espérance banlieues Foundation develops a school model specifically adapted to the needs of the suburbs. It was developed at the pilot school Alexandre-Dumas de Montfermeil. As a result, schools are set up everywhere in France at the initiative of local project promoters. These establishments, accompanied by the Foundation, constitute the network of "Esperance schools suburbs".
TO FIGHT AGAINST SCHOLARSHIP DROPOUT • Educate each child in a rigorous and structured way. • To assimilate the rules of life in society: respect, authority, responsibility. • Promote successful professional integration.
INTEGRATING CHILDREN FROM IMMIGRATION Developing knowledge and a taste for French culture. • Cultivate a strong sense of belonging in schools to divert children from parallel logic of belonging (communitarianism, criminal gangs, radical Islam).
