Les enfants de la Loi 101. Groupes de discussions exploratoires
Abstract
In 1977, the Parti Québécois government enacted Bill 101, the Charter of the French Language, which, among other things, streamed all children whose parents were not educated in English in Canada into French language schools. Over the next twenty years, the number of Allophone students in Quebec attending French-language elementary and secondary schools (instead of English-language schools) rose from twenty percent in 1976-77 to eighty percent in 1997-98. These students became known as "the children of Bill 101." The author describes a survey undertaken in 2000 of twenty groups of young Allophone adults, aged between 18 and 30, who had been streamed into French language primary and secondary schools. Among the findings was that half of the participants in the survey had migrated from French to English-language schools at CEGEP and/or university levels.
