Tomorrow children go back to school. On this occasion, members of the Education Across Borders Collective decided to organize a rally at Marguerite Bourgeoys commission scolaire, to denounce the fact that hundreds of children are forced to stay at home because their parents don’t have a regularized immigration status.
With the Quebec law on public education set to be modified in the weeks to come, members of the collective believe that it’s time to act.
We have spoken with Anne Buisson, member of the Collective, and Diane Lamarche-Venne, commission scolaire’s president.
