Title
Challenges Around Resources and Services in Quebec's English-Language Schools
Abstract
The authors point out that English-language schools in Quebec struggle with diverse challenges, from urban and rural poverty to being located in isolated and remote areas. They note that schools in remote areas with isolated communities are in special need of additional support, since they tend to serve students who do not have access to many services and resources outside of the school. The authors explain that it is not only remote areas that have schools with small student populations. These schools can also be found in rural, semi-rural, and even some urban settings. Small student populations in urban settings make schools vulnerable to closure. This is a recent issue that the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) experienced as three schools in the east end of Montreal underwent mergers and transfers as a result of the lack of students and the urgent need for school buildings within the Francophone sector.
