Guest of the month is Rozenn Milin, who has just successfully presented her sociology diploma thesis, which shows, among other things, that the “linguistic suicide” of the Bretons was neither voluntary nor serene : Psychological violence, which still feeds the debates today, is in fact the result of a desire reaffirmed by France to eradicate languages ​​other than French. She has collected almost 800 testimonies in Brittany, but also in Senegal and other countries, proving that this policy of the state and in particular of the national education system has humiliated entire generations of school children.

Another thesis, just as important: that of Katell Chantreau the transmission of the Breton language in families. On 430 pages she reports on her study of today’s Brittophone families, their relationship to the language and their practices of passing the language on to their children – or not. And she suggests 10 actions for politicians to encourage this transmission. Two pages of interview collected by Maxime Touzé.

The role of the school in the 21st centurye Century in Brittany is therefore essential. Alan ar Gal analyzed for The Breton people the numbers for the start of the 2022 school year in the three networks Diwan, Divyezh (public school) and Divaskell (Catholic school). Progress is weak; the goal of 20,000 bilingual students has not yet been reached. The agreement signed this year between the state and the Brittany region therefore gives hope for a change in size. But for that problem of teacher recruitment should be solved by public education and by Catholic education. All figures can be found in our November issue.
