Minister Yves Bolduc says the English school system is doing well, despite a recent report from the Education ministry.
Enrollment in the English system has dropped by a whopping 60% since 1972, says a report on the linguistic breakdown in the school system.
The number is compounded by the fact that 12 percent of children who could attend English school, don't. That's 13 thousand children.
"That's their decision," says the Education minister. He says the numbers should not be a cause for concern.
"We have a very good system in French and in English and I don't believe that there is a risk for the survival of the English school system."
