Transformer les collèges communaux en lycées. La coproduction d'une action publique (1830-1880)

Abstract : French nineteenth century secondary education may only be frequented by a small fraction of young boys, it is nonetheless the focal point of the public education in construction, which allows to consider public secondary schools as a privileged observatory of schooling and public policy before the IIIrd Republic. In this regard, this dissertation studies the transformation, between 1830 and 1880, of 45 collèges managed by town councils into lycées administrated by the state. These conversions are studied through three lines of research. First of all, the analysis of the roles and obligations of each of the actors involved in the process brings to light the educational motivations of the transformations, as well as their financial and urban ones. Secondly, the contents of the projects developed to enable the collèges to undertake their new status of lycées show the scope of governmental requirements but also the how adjustments can be made to suit local configurations. Lastly, the practical arrangements, the necessary conditions for the opening of the lycées, the changes made in the directors and teachers and the evolution of the attendance demonstrate the effects of the transition between two status on a pre-established category and the place assigned for the new lycées. Former collèges, they are not conceived as future great lycées but allow the State to strengthen its schooling network.
