Issue 25 Editorials and Rejoinders

Inroads 25’s main theme section is devoted to education, taking its cue from a landmark September 2008 article in a Montreal newspaper by former Quebec premier Jacques Parizeau that drew attention to the school dropout problem, especially among francophone students. Along with a translation of Parizeau’s article, the section includes an analysis of the school dropout problem on a Canada-wide scale by John Richards, an account of the failure of Ontario’s compulsory civic education program by Henry Milner, a discussion of educational issues by Parizeau’s former adviser (and future PQ cabinet minister) Jean-François Lisée, a critique of Quebec’s history curriculum by Christian Rioux and Magali Favre, and a look at Finland’s successful education system by Luc Allaire.
