By Daniel Serceau

Cette dernière catégorie est largement traitée grâce à l’analyse détaillée du movie Entre les murs, de Laurent Cantet, qui pose les problèmes avec strength et dégage les réalités complexes d’une crise qui touche les savoirs dont certains ne font plus autorité, les enseignants remis en reason dans leur légitimité et enfin les élèves, dans leur refus de se plier à des règles indispensables à l’acquisition des savoirs et des savoir-faire.
