Speak French or Leave


Cherie LeBlanc says her 9-year-old son Justin was struggling with French in his Quebec elementary school, so she asked school officials to move him to an English language school because he does better in English. But the government rejected her request because Justin's father is a francophone, and under Quebec law, the children of French speakers must be educated in French. LeBlanc was born in the United States, and Justin has dual citizenship, so she says the two of them will move to Delaware where he can be schooled in English, while her husband and their other children will remain in Canada.
