« C’est qui TGV ? » Contextualisation de l’enseignement dans le premier degré à La Réunion

Abstract : In 2009, the regional education authority of Reunion Island counts forty seven teachers holding the capacitation allowing them to officially teach «Regional Language and Culture » . The only existing implement for so doing in the area is the few bilingual classes. Only ten primary school teachers practice in experimental bilingual classes on a total of 6434 teachers of the first degree, that is 0.1 % of the total number of the primary school teachers. In spite of the pompous term « capacitation to Regional Language and Culture», the culture is factually and pedagogically absent from the syllabus. Never have the Regional education authority evoked the question of the Reunion Island culture, or the possibility of a contextualisation of the teaching. The present paper lies on observations and commitments made twenty years ago. It tries to show that without contextualising the teaching, without real consideration for the Reunion Island culture, without training of the teachers in this culture, without an educational application of the knowledge, " bilingual classes ", the bilingual classes, whose number is ridiculous, are doomed to, at best, hold the role of glass window, giving the institution good consciousness. Many teachers and inspectons as well, say, that french department is not different from the department in Metropolitan France, whereas in fact, the problem is that of teachers’ training.
