My Comment: Children of immigrants are .... by law .... forced to go to French schools. If anyone visits a french high school in Montreal (I have one behind my home), you will here English (and other languages) spoken as much as French. It is hard to learn about subjects in school when it is taught in another language.

42% graduation rate. This is an outrage. But the pro-french educators do not care .... to them it is all about getting students to fill the french schools so that they can continue keeping employed french teachers.
