Les Attitudes des parents acadiens neo-ecossais a l'egard du francais et de l'anglais au Canada (The Attitudes of Nova Scotian Acadian Parents toward French and English in Canada). Publication G-11.
In the context of recent Nova Scottian (Canada) provincial legislation establishing primarily Acadian, French-language public schools in four regions, a survey investigated local Acadians' attitudes about the roles of both French and English in these schools. Survey samples included 330 parents of primary school children and 145 parents of eleventh- and twelfth-graders in the four regions. The questionnaire gathered information on the respondent and family and measured the intensity of agreement or disagreement with statements reflecting attitudes. Seven variables were examined in addition to specific attitudes. These included general population attitudes; region; age; native language; educational attainment; language used in the home; sex; and socioeconomic status. The report analyzes the results in detail, supported by substantial statistical data, and presents detailed conclusions for each variable and parent population studied. (MSE)
