Quebec's education minister is putting a hold on the plan to implement intensive English in Grade 6 classes across the province. The PQ is not killing the program. The decision will be left up to individual schools.
The Quebec French Parents Federation is satisfied with the announcement of Mme Marie Malavoy and wish to continue with the implementation of ‘Intensive English language Education" in grade 6.
"Le président de la FCPQ, M. Gaston Rioux, rappelle que « les parents ont eux-mêmes fait valoir l’importance de respecter le rythme de chacun des milieux. En ce sens, que le gouvernement lève l’exigence, pour toutes les écoles primaires francophones du Québec, d’offrir en 6e année l’enseignementintensif de l’anglais d’ici 2015-2016 est cohérent."
This situation applies to about a thousand students province-wide and represents a temporary authorization to receive educational services in English for the duration of the parent's posting to Quebec.
Many agree with the ideas you present in this article, and we quote: "Indeed the fear is not so much that anglophones are learning too much French (in fact, Quebec anglophones are bilingual in higher proportion than most other groups, just as Quebecers are bilingual in higher proportion than other groups in Canada) but that francophones are learning too much English and are using it to the detriment of French....
The retort is that ultimately, most people’s French is bad enough that spending time on learning English is further detrimental to the survival of French, or simply that encouraging bilingualism discourages the view that French is Quebec’s official language. I admit that the issue is complex and rather sensitive, but my thought is that measures that target Quebec anglophones are, to some degree, misguided."
There's a hootin' and a hollerin' in Quebec over the last few weeks as Education Minister Marie Malavoy announced a full top to the former Liberal Government's plan to have an intensive English-language learning program ...
Many parent's with school age children share your belief that learning English at an early age is beneficial to their child sucess, in fact 87% of the FCPQ's French school boards in Quebec declared themselves to be in favour of Intensive English language education in their schools on February 12th, 2012
: "Chez nous, à la Fédération, les parents réunis en conseil général se sont prononcés en faveur de l’implantation de l’anglais intensif dans les écoles du Québec (87 %).
A group of parents with the Lester B. Pearson School Board are speaking out against Bill 14, which would beef up the province's French language charter and, among many changes, restrict access to English schools.

Pearson School Board's, the creators of this petition, have be giving audience at 5:00 PM on Wednesday March 27th, 2013 in the Legislative Council Room of the National Assembly in Quebec to present their views and suggestions as to why the members of the National Assembly should reject Bill 14.
