Parti Québécois Education Minister, Marie Malavoy, stated that she just intends to halt the previous plan due to staffing issues. She also mentioned that “some students, they learn more slowly, they have difficulties in the classroom, and are they able to be in the same intensive classroom? I’m not sure.” The PQ government also intends to annul the mandatory English classes in Grades 1 and 2. She justified stating that “in Quebec, when we want to understand our history, know where we come from, understand what is going on today, we need to discuss the national question.”
Malavoy announced that her office does not intends to kill the program of The Intensive English program in Grade 6, but just implement it a litter slower or after some time.
