Together building a school for all
The public school system in Quebec is in danger.
By subsidizing private schools with public funds and allowing selective special projects in the public network, our system is constantly exacerbating school segregation and tramples upon the principle of equal opportunity.
The educational, social and economic consequences of this physical separation between privileged kids and the most vulnerable are disastrous for the Quebec of today and of tomorrow.
It is time to propose a new vision for our schools!
A FAIR SCHOOL
We ask that 100% of public funds in education benefit the 'new public' that we propose. We accept the existence of private schools, but they should no longer receive public funds.
A SERENE SCHOOL
We want to end the selection of students in the public school system. This skimming creates stress for families and erodes communities won't be in the ‘new public.’
A COMMON SCHOOL
We want a ‘new public’ that is strengthened by the return of most of the subsidized private school students and of all students of selective special projects. Keeping the best-performing students within a common class is a determining factor in school success for all.
AN EFFECTIVE SCHOOL
We propose that the ‘new public’ consolidate aid to struggling students and develop an enriched learning environment for students who are high performers.
I too ask political parties to include the following in their platform for the Quebec election of October 2018:
- Put an end to all direct or indirect private school funding.
- Put an end to the selection of students in the public system for selective special projects, at both primary and secondary levels.
- Consolidate aid to struggling students and develop an enriched learning environment for students who are high performers, and all within a common classroom.
For now, please us the homepage form in French to sign the petition. Thank you!
