Choosing the Language of Instruction for One's Children: A Quebec Study
Frasure-Smith, Nancy; And Others
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 6, 2, 131-155, Jun 75
Ethnic identity patterns and motivations of selected subgroups of Quebec French and English-Canadian parents, who were compared with parents who send their children to "other" language schools (i.e., French-Canadians to English language schools and English-Canadians to French language schools) with those whose children attend schools where the home language is used as the medium of instruction. All parents agreed on the benefits of bilingualism in occupational and educational matters. However, people perceive different costs and rewards associated with choice of language of schooling.
