Minority Francophone Education in Canada. Lessons in Learning
Canadian Council on Learning
Access to French-language education has been a hard-won right for francophones outside of Quebec. While this is now a right enshrined in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and in the Official Languages Act, minority francophone education continues to face important challenges, including the persistent finding that francophones in minority-language contexts are falling behind their majority-language counterparts in literacy proficiency. This paper describes the reasons for lower literacy among minority francophones and cites strategies for fostering stronger literacy skills among them. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
