Caroline Désir, Minister of Education: “The Belgian history of the Congo is too often ignored, we can no longer tolerate this gap”


The French Minister of Education, Caroline Désir, responded to the open letter sent by Cécile Djunga and published on our website.

In a Facebook video, the socialist explained how important the fight against racism was and should be part of the current educational reforms.

Filling gaps

“It is not so much that the history of the Congo or of colonization is done in an awkward manner on the basis of outdated references, it is above all that this history is too often ignored. Most of the students do not hear about Belgian colonization in the Congo or the mechanisms of exploitation and domination. We can no longer tolerate this gap, ”said Caroline Désir.

The minister assures her that, in the new student learning path, the history of the Congo, its independence and its colonization will be addressed and systematic. The direct link will be made with Belgian history. Caroline Désir also wants to develop educational tools for teachers.
