Abstract

The functioning of many education systems around the world was disrupted during the Covid-19 crisis. Even the idyllic atolls of French Polynesia – although far from the main centers of contagion – have not been spared, so the school and families were induced to adapt and to find new strategies of collaboration. This paper is based on the study of 19 families living in Tahiti, and it analyse the discourses of Polynesian parents charged with new responsibilities associated with school support during the crisis. The results obtained reveal that attitudes linked with such new tasks are closely correlated with the socio-economic status, and that the educational style of parents, during confinement, favoured directive and empowering traits. Finally, the study shows that Polynesian parents maintained a conflicting relationship with pedagogical continuity, confirming an overall trend, observed in other postcolonial contexts.
