Abstract

De plus en plus d’enseignants issus de l’immigration ont trouvé leur place dans les écoles élémentaires et secondaires canadiennes, notamment en Ontario français. Certains d’entre eux rencontrent des difficultés à s’insérer dans la profession, alors que ceux à qui on a offert un contrat d’enseignement à long terme déploient des efforts considérables afin de voir cette opportunité se transformer en position permanente. En nous appuyant sur les résultats de deux recherches qualitatives conduites auprès d’étudiants issus de l’immigration dans un programme de formation à l’enseignement et d’enseignants issus de l’immigration en insertion professionnelle, cet article fera état des représentations racialisées de victime, d’étranger et d’incompétent dont ils sont l’objet. Des pistes d’explication et de solution à ce phénomène seront également discutées.

THREE RACIALIZED REPRESENTATIONS OF IMMIGRANT TEACHERS DURING THEIR PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATION

More and more immigrant teachers have found their place in Canadian elementary and secondary schools, notably in francophone Ontario. Some face difficulties to integrate the profession, while those who have been offered a long-term teaching contract deploy considerable efforts to transform this opportunity into a permanent position. Drawing from the results of two qualitative studies conducted with immigrant students enrolled in a teacher training program and immigrant teachers during their professional integration, this article will present the racialized representations of the victim, the foreigner, and the incompetent to which they are subjected. Explanations of and solutions to this phenomenon will also be discussed.
