This document is a report submitted on April 26, 2018 by Jean Louis Borloo, former minister delegated to the City (2002-2004), entitled “Living Together, Living in Large, for a National Reconciliation” on the theme of City Policy. This report discusses issues related to school and out-of-school education in City Policy Neighbourhoods (QPV) or Priority Education Networks (REP) institutions.
The section entitled “Investing in early childhood” refers in particular to the theme of school inequality according to the means of families.
A 4-year-old from a poor family has heard 30 million fewer words and has half as many words as a wealthy child. Indeed, the children of fragile families, those who do not speak French at home, are welcomed less than others in socialization places, nurseries, kindergartens at the age of 2 years … children who are more welcome in these places, those are those whose parents master the system best.
Inspired by the Perry Preschool experiences (enhanced educational support to 3-year-olds), Carolina Abecedarian (Early Educational Support), Head Start (early social and educational support) or Nurse Family Partnership (mothers support) who showed the positive impact of social investment in early childhood, Jean Louis Borloo proposes the creation of a “BASE Program” to intervene further upstream at the level of families and children in sensitive urban areas.
