The Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers (QPAT) is also expressing concerns about the consultation process that ends this Sunday for the Marois government's new school history courses.
Richard Goldfinch, president of the federation of teachers in the English public school system representing 8,000 members, told CJAD 800 News that the timeframe is very short.
"We're wondering how honest the whole thing is quite honestly. It really is such a short turnaround period, it hasn't been well-publicized, do they already have in mind where they're going with this? Mmm, you might want to fill in that blank, yes," Goldfinch said.
Goldfinch said they're also concerned the process may result in too narrow a scope in the curriculum. He said they'd also like to have seen more viewpoints on the committee in charge of reforming the classes, which currently consists of one historian and one sociologist. CJAD 800 News has already reported that there were concerns the process may be strongly influenced by a pro-independence pressure group.
