La question religieuse dans les écoles publiques élémentaires et la modernisation des "daara" : enjeux et réalités. Quel modèle et quelle(s) vision(s) de la laicité au Sénégal ?

Abstract : Following international recommendations and with the aim of achieving universal primary-level education, the Government of Senegal, has undertaken a reform of its education system, starting in the school year 2002-2003. This includes : the introduction of religious education in state-funded primary schools, the creation of state-funded French-Arabic schools, the modernisation of daara Koranic schools and experimenting with the teaching of local language in state-funded primary. The consideration of religion in children's education through the education system is responding to repeated, strong demand by religious communities and a large section of the Senegalese population. This demand was formally expressed during the General Review of Education and Training held in 1981. Certain aspects of the reforms question the laicity model in use in Senegal - started as soon as the government changed after general elections. The question of the present dissertation is rooted in the recurring polemics and the dispute over interpretation of laicity that occurred between independence (1960) and the beginning of 2002. To address the research question, two objectives have been chosen : to examine the effects of the introduction of religious education in state-funded primary schools and the project of modernisation of Koranic schools, to analyse the model and different visions of laicity in Senegal. It is therefore a question of diagnosing the issues and challenges of the two reforms and using them as a framework for observation research into the model and different types of laicity in Senegal. Our methodology for this research is to use literature review, semi-directive interviews and analysis of speeches.
