Abstract In contemporary pluralistic societies, tolerance is today a crucial value and a cardinal virtue. Tolerance regarding choices of identity and choices of cultural belonging seems to call for a duty of tolerance toward identities and individual choices. Nevertheless some communities refuse to let their children confronted with divergent ways of living. This fact therefore raises the question of the limit for respect of pluralism at school. We'll demonstrate that the conflicts analysed in the paper could be solved by a "logic of compromise" rather than a "logic of consensus" and by an "institutionalization of disagreement" which can offer an effective expression to moral and reasonable conflicts.
