Intensive English in grade 6 no longer mandatory

Intensive English in grade 6 no longer mandatory | How Bill 14 will affect educational access | Scoop.it
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.
CoalitionQuebecFuture's insight:

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."

033 – bill 14, english schools, and bilingualism | Sophistry and ...

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.
CoalitionQuebecFuture's insight:

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."

 

And at what ultimate cost to all Quebecker?

CoalitionQuebecFuture's insight:

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
