While real schools and universities are often prominently featured in works of fiction, this is a list of schools and universities which are entirely fictional, even though some of them are modeled after real world institutions.
Relying on a fictional setting allows the authors to exaggerate certain aspects of school life for humorous or dramatic effect. In tales targeted at children and teens, the actual learning and teaching experience is usually downplayed to focus on social interaction, often taking place outside the classroom. Some fictional schools and universities teach subjects which are not ordinarily taught, such as witchcraft, circus arts, or even sexual behavior.
Robespierre took his seat on the Commune of Paris, which had overthrown Louis XVI, as a means to check the political ambitions of the Girondins.
The strongmen of the Commune were glad to have Robespierre's assistance â€“ not because they cared for him or believed in him, but because of his popularity, his reputation for virtue (which had won for him the surname of "The Incorruptible"), and his influence over the Jacobin Club and its branches ubiquitous throughout France.
