Title
The State of Tutelage in Lower Canada, 1835-1851
Abstract
The Rebellion of 1837 prompted a re-examination by British Whigs and Radicals of Lower Canada’s educational and administrative policies and practices. For both groups, this meant placing the colonial population under more extensive relations of tutelage. It was proposed to create a system of elementary schools supported by state grants and property taxes as a means of creating responsible and dutiful citizens. These schools would be managed by elected officials and reviewed by a hierarchy of authorities.
