Title
Les écoles privées à projet religieux ou spirituel : analyse de trois "communautés" éducatives – juive, musulmane et Steiner – à Montréal
Abstract
The author offers an empirical analysis of the philosophy behind private schools in Montreal founded on religious or spiritual principles. Specifically, the author examines how the religious or spiritual dimensions of three private schools specific to minority groups or social currents (Jewish, Muslim, Waldorf) are transferred into discourse and practices within the schools. The author found that the Waldorf school illustrates a more or less "ideal type" of communialization, given that the Waldorf school focuses on spiritual work without necessarily situating itself with relation to other social groups. She found that the Muslim school adapts references associated with the religion in an attempt to constitute a "bridge" between primary socialization and that of the host society. Finally, she found that the Jewish school fosters the externalization of an ethno-religious community. The Jewish tradition being taught at the school is described as "non-religious traditionalism" by school officials, and presents few re-interpretations or transformations of the tradition in the context of the school.
