Greek Day Education in and around Montreal: The Case for a Greek Trilingual High School.
Bombas, Leonidas C.
The history of the education of Montreal's Greek population is traced in this report, which is partly intended to act as a stimulus for future planning and development. Six chapters contain, respectively: (1) a history of Greek day education in and around Montreal, from its origin in 1910 with the founding of the "Plato" school to its securing of the financial support of the Quebec government in the 1970s; (2) a discussion of the outcomes of Greek day schooling (which are said to be generally excellent); (3) a brief note on the educational advantages of bilingualism and cultural maintenance programs; (4) an argument favoring the establishment of a (trilingual) Greek day high school; (5) the results of a survey of 118 Greek-origin individuals on the establishment of such a school to serve Montreal's Greek community; and (6) a summary of major conclusions. The report concludes with a selected bibliography of literature on Canada's Greeks. (KH)
