Civil Integration Through Education: The Building of European Schools

  • Stefanie Pukallus
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter shows how, in the summer of 1952, faced with the immediate and concrete problem of providing schooling for the new European Community officials who had recently moved their families to Luxembourg, the European Community decided to create the first European School in Luxembourg. This European School was more than a pragmatic solution, it was seen as a vehicle that enabled the bringing together of children with different national mentalities and outlooks, different cultural pre-dispositions as well as different attitudes, values and priorities around a common European focus. European Schools were seen as a way to facilitate a new European civil disposition and a common feeling of belonging to Europe.
