Oh no, it look like the Province of Quebec is becoming more flexible in allowing les autres to have their own schools and according to what I can pull from the Globe and Mail and Le Devoir stories on the story today this is causing quite a stir with the nationalist element in La Belle.
First move will allow schools to school on the weekend which lets Orthodox Jewish schools, and they are the most les autre of les autres, to, Le Devoir says it garnered from documents it has recieved, to teach compulsory subjects on Sundays, their non day of rest.
Minister of Education Michelle Courchesne says that the impetus behind the law is to help children complete their education.
The fear, as Parti Quebecois education critic Pierre Curzi sees it, is that the education system will splinter and that there will be a ton of school boards serving various faiths, big and small. As it stands, private schools in Quebec that follow the province's curric can receive sixty per cent of the money they need to run the school and still teach strict religious values and religion.
Looks kinda cool to me, a product of the Catholic school system.
