Message from the Fédération des comités de parents du Québec

"This week is an opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance that public schools have had and still have in Quebec. It is also an opportunity for parents and all actors in society to show that education remains a priority for them," said Kevin Roy, president of the Fédération des comités de parents du Québec (FCPQ).

The faces of public school

Whether they come from Cameroon, the Ukraine or Gatineau, whether they have a learning disability or not, whether they are learning in a school outside the major centers or in a professional center in the city, public school students are welcomed with open arms, regardless of their differences, year after year. This universal and free access, without discrimination, is its greatest strength. It is this theme that will set the tone for the 13e Public School Week.

This initiative, set up by the Fédération autonome de l'enseignement (FAE), is a joint initiative of the two organizations.

"School is a place of instruction and learning, but also a place of socialization where students, young people and adults, come into contact with different people and learn to appreciate these differences. This environment is their first lever towards an adult world, where multiple cultures, differences in sexual orientations, gender identities, learning disabilities, and types of disabilities intersect, and that is the beauty of this environment. The sum of all these differences represents a great social wealth that the public school must cultivate in order to make students not only educated citizens, but also open to others," said Philippe Laprise, SPEP spokesperson for a 6e year.
