From religious fundamentalist networks to new-age environmentalist schools: Anna Erelle’s latest undercover investigation into the various forms of alternative education springing up all over France.

For almost a year, Anna Erelle and Jacques Duplessy have been investigating the misunderstood phenomenon and growing embarrassment of the French government: the multiplying number of alternative schools passing under the radar of the French Ministry of National Education. Although, since Jules Ferry, education is required in France, sending your children to school isn’t, as long as some form of education is given to them. Yet, as the temptation towards communitarianism has been eating away at France, what was once a marginal allowance has become a real problem in society. “Online schools” and secret networks have exploded in the last few years, seeing a whole generation of children being educated outside the republican system. After the shockwave caused by the murder of Samuel Paty and President Macron’s vow to fight against separatism—of which dismantling education structures that promote radical Islamism is a key part—alternative education has become an explosive topic in France. This book, the fruit of undercover field investigations like those used in In the Skin of a Jihadist, aims at opening our eyes to all the different kinds of schools that exist outside the French national system and the dangers they represent. They will send shivers down your spine, because while Islamic fundamentalism forms the most obvious threat, other forms of radicalism, from Evangelical protestants to Catholic and Jewish fundamentalists, without counting non-religious groups like new age environmentalists, will not be outdone. They all have a common enemy: the secular model inspired by the Enlightenment on which the French Republic is based.
