QC Bill 96 potentially hurts access to postsecondary for students with invisible disabilities

Students with invisible disabilities might struggle under Quebec’s Bill 96, reports CTV News. The bill requires all CEGEP students at English schools to take three French-language courses to graduate. The Quebec Association for Equity and Inclusion in Post-Secondary Education (AQEIPS) states that students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, or who are neurodiverse often struggle to complete degrees in their first language. AQEIPS further points out that people with disabilities who cannot access postsecondary education are more at risk of living in poverty. The provincial government has responded by stating that it would be open to exempting students with disabilities from the requirements set out in Bill 96, though they did not elaborate on how this would work.
