This chapter examines the school ghetto in France. The Jewish school in France was never conceived or planned; it just created itself behind the backs of community institutions. The first modern Jewish institution in the country with a pedagogical vocation, the Alliance Israélite Universelle, was founded in 1860 and decided against opening schools in France. However, in the middle of the 1990s it was finally decided to create a new school in France. But the new institution, the Établissement Georges Leven, was fraught with many problems. During this period, the students in Pavillons-sous-Bois continued to attend classes in unhealthy conditions. The chapter shows how the history of Jewish schools in France is a reflection of what happened with the Pavillons-sous-Bois school.
