English cégep teachers express concern about impact of changes brought about by Bill 96


Instructors from English cégeps spoke to CBC and CTV News about how Bill 96 could result in students having fewer opportunities to study languages other than French. This fall, students who do not have a certificate of eligibility to study in English will be required to take a French exit exam before they graduate. English cégeps will be required to offer more French courses, which the instructors fear could come at the cost of other courses such as Spanish or Mandarin. Several expressed their concern about the way QC implemented the new law and what it will mean for their jobs. “The administrations are struggling to find a way to accommodate the government in the new law, but at the same time protect teachers and ensure student success,” said Dawson College instructor Christina Chough.
