Why are English school boards in trouble?
While Anglopohones in Quebec decry the treatment they receive as a minority, there's a very ironic and troubling trend underway that speaks to the notion of self-flagellation.
Instead of propping up our own institutions, and using the tools available to us to promote and sustain the English language, it turns out more and more parents who could be sending their children to English schools, are instead sending them to French schools. This, even though these same English schools offer extensive French instruction, and have gone out of their way lately to let parents know that students who attend its schools can emerge fully bilingual by the time they graduate?
Are we shooting ourselves in the foot by not taking advantage of what's being offered to us in the English system, or is the system simply not as good as those in it profess ? And how serious a problem is this?
