Abstract

Les recherches des 20 dernières années autour du choix scolaire et des marchés locaux d’éducation ont été contradictoires ou bien elles n’ont pas été concluantes: certaines appuient l’initiative de donner aux parents une plus grande liberté à l’heure de choisir une école; d’autres soutiennent la posture qu’un plus grand choix augmente les inconvénients des plus démunis. Sans tenir compte de la position philosophique, il est possible de dire que le choix scolaire dépend de l’économie politique, où bénéfices et défauts sont la conséquence de l’engagement avec les impératifs politiques ou socioéconomiques. Ce texte juxtapose quelques résultats du Royaume-Uni, des États-Unis et de l’Europe dans un contexte sociopolitique et met en discussion leurs implications théoriques.

Research over the last twenty years on school choice and local markets in education has been contradictory or inconclusive: some supports the movement to give parents more freedom in choosing schools; other findings support the view that greater choice further disadvantages the already disadvantaged. Irrespective of philosophical position, it can be said that school choice is driven by political economy in that its benefits and shortcomings are as a consequence of engagement with political or socio-economic imperatives. This paper juxtaposes some findings from the UK, the US and Europe in a socio-political context and discusses their theoretical implications.
