History[ edit ] s and s[ edit ] Formal education in Quebec began almost four hundred years ago, with the arrival of the Ursuline nuns to Lower Canadaand later the inauguration of the Jesuit College was inaugurated in in Quebec City. While the system was initially private, ina Commission on Education chaired by Judge William Smith proposed the establishment of a public system from elementary school through to university.
It recommended that the system include a non-denominational university governed by lay and religious representatives - both Catholic and Protestant - that would attract members of both faiths. This report was a catalyst for debate about the divided nature of the Quebec education system.
The system did not secularize until the Quiet Revolution of the s. Laval University grew out of the Quebec Seminary. Specializing in undergraduate education,  its mandate was to represent both British and rural Quebec traditions.

Under the Lesage government, the recommendations of the Parent Report  were taken up and had lasting effect on Quebec education, including unprecedented amounts of public spending on education. The Protestant and Catholic school boards formalized by the late 19th century  operated with barely any communication with each other, the result of which was a sharp difference in the quality of education for Catholic and Protestant corresponding to Francophone and Anglophone citizens of Quebec.
The population served by the Protestant school board was substantially smaller than that of the Catholic, benefitting also from more secular educational principles inspired by the Scottish model. Democratization and Access to higher education were priorities for the Quebec Government. Therefore, the government recognized the need for development of its educational resources, which led to the Parent Commission, a mandate to investigate the entire educational system in Quebec.
This commission conducted public hearings, visited more than 50 institutions throughout the province, interviewed more than experts, and visited educational institutions in other provinces, in the USA and Europe.
Democratization of the system and Access to students were the key words in the report, and the access referred to students were not being prevented by geography or finances from going as far as possible in the system.
A universal right to education was unquestioned. This premise was revolutionary, because the post-compulsory education after the age of 14 was a privilege or a luxury, not suitable for everyone.
The demand on the post secondary system saw increases of sixty percent per decade until the s. This helped to smooth articulation between the various colleges and universities, both public and private, which increased the volume of students  This committee was the result of a provincial royal commission recommendation that stressed the need to accommodate an increasing demand for higher education, and to provide industry with the higher degree of skilled labour required in the industrialized province.
Although both institutions had religious roots as Jesuit and Christian, Concordia is established as a secular institution. Because the CEGEP graduate was given 30 credits toward a bachelor's degree leaving only 90 credits, the university courses became more specialized and of course shorter.
Their French counterpart was required to complete an undergraduate degree in general arts before entrance into three additional years of Science Studies; thus, CEGEPs standardize the required duration of training for both English and French students.
It developed two commissions: It was modelled after state university systems in New York State and California. It was developed with a central administration office located in Quebec City with four initial campuses: Specialized courses are offering at the various regional campus are designed with local representatives and ecological orientation.
The initial philosophies were meant to be more democratic, less elite and more flexible. Decade of Planning and Development During this decade post-secondary enrollments multiplied once again. Technical institutes and most classical colleges were integrated.
Most universities were unionized, and differing visions of teachers and administrators over college policies and working conditions meant conflict and turbulence.
The student population had a more heterogeneous background, and increased the numbers of women and older students.
Disciplines at the Institut Armand Frappier are focused around health science research including immunology and environmental biotechnology. The Council's responsibilities included implementing a plan of development and financing education.
The Parent Report released in was essentially the blueprint for university development in Quebec.
The Quebec Government believed that success in school reform hinged on having well qualified teachers, and teacher education underwent major changes in the preparation and qualification for those entering the profession.
The Quebec universities assumed the duties of administering teacher education. By the end of the s, undergraduate degrees became the minimum requirement for new teachers in the K-V system. Essentially, "the reforms fundamentally altered the character and pattern of education, changing it from a decentralized, church dominated system serving an elite to a centralized, state controlled one catering to a mass population.
