Press conference coverage--Université de Moncton, April 7th, 2008

Drs. Jimmy Borque and Rodrique Landry, directors of the
Centre de recherche et de développement en éducation and de l'Institut canadien de recherche sur les minorités linguistiques, respectively, held a press conference on their evaluation of Minister Lamrock's decision to terminate Early French Immersion in NB Anglophone schools. They concluded that the Croll and Lee report, the report that was the basis of Minister Lamrock's decision, was severely flawed. They suggested that whatever the goal, the policy developed cannot be said to be research-based. They challenged the Minister to submit the report to a panel of experts for further review.
