Title
The Education of Italians in Montreal, 1895 to 1960
Abstract
A study of the educational habits of Italian children in the Catholic schools of Montreal between 1895 and 1960. Language played an important role in the Catholic schools frequented by Italian children. Italian children were educated in either the English, French or Italian languages from the beginning of the twentieth century to the 1950s. The author found that a discernible shift in the attendance of Italian children from French to English schools occurred after the Second World War. By 1960, nearly eighty percent of Italian children were attending English Catholic schools.
