For several years, French Muslims have rallied to open their own schools. Today there are 30 private Muslim schools, 282 private Jewish schools, and 8,485 private Catholic schools.
Since 2010, many projects have emerged with interesting features: the majority of Muslim schools are independent and were initiatives of the local community. Today, these schools are still heavily supported by their original supporters. Their financing is primarily provided by several generous individuals and primarily funds tuition. Additionally, there are several charter schools for Muslim students that receive partial government funding.
