Project
We are a team composed of researchers from the University of Alberta (Campus Saint-Jean) and members of the educational community. Our project in partnership with Canadian Parents for French (CPF) and funded by the Association des Collèges et Universités de la Francophonie Canadienne (ACUFC), focuses on parents of students who are thinking about withdrawing or who have already withdrawn their child/ren from French Immersion programs or Francophone schools in a minority context. This study also looks at the experiences of teachers and administrators who accompany families who are considering a change of program or school for their child/ren to gather their perspectives on the issue. Understanding reasons for student withdrawal will allow for recommendations that can help improve overall retention from Kindergarten through Grade 12 in these two alternative educational contexts in Canada.https://sites.google.com/ualberta.ca/recif-srifs
