Québec précise ce que les écoles peuvent facturer ou non aux parents

Les écoles ne pourront ainsi plus facturer aux parents du matériel de laboratoires, d’arts ou d’éducation physique.

C’est aux conseils d’établissement – formés d’un nombre égal de parents et de membres du personnel de l’école – à qui revient le devoir d’approuver les sommes facturées aux parents pour les frais scolaires.

Le projet de loi précise la portée du droit à la gratuité du matériel didactique et permet au ministre de déterminer par règlement le matériel auquel ce droit s’applique ou ne s’applique pas.

Jean-François Roberge, ministre de l’Éducation

Le projet de loi précise que les commissions scolaires doivent veiller à l’application du règlement.

Quant au gouvernement, il se réserve le droit de déterminer par règlement les sommes qui peuvent ou ne peuvent pas être exigées des parents.

Fin de la confusion?

Le ministre de l’Éducation du gouvernement précédent, Sébastien Proulx, avait tenté de mettre un terme aux débats en présentant, en juin dernier, une directive mettant en place des balises sur la gratuité scolaire pour les services éducatifs, les manuels scolaires et le matériel.

La directive n’avait toutefois pas mis un terme à la confusion ambiante, tant dans le réseau qu’auprès des parents.

La directive ministérielle stipulait notamment que les sorties éducatives organisées dans un contexte pédagogique devaient être gratuites, tout comme l’inscription à l’école et aux programmes particuliers.

Le ministre n’avait toutefois fait aucune liste des articles scolaires qui pouvaient être facturés aux parents. Les commissions scolaires conservaient « l’opportunité d’interpréter la loi », avait indiqué le ministre Proulx.

Dans le cadre d’un recours collectif intenté par des parents contestant des frais qui leur ont été facturés, les commissions scolaires vont prochainement rembourser 153 millions de dollars à des centaines de milliers d’entre eux.

Intervenue en juillet 2018, l’entente sur le recours touche 900 000 élèves québécois et s’étend de 2008 à 2012.

Le projet de loi du ministre Roberge vise à clore le débat sur les frais de scolarité et à éviter d’autres actions collectives du genre à l’avenir.

Biometric Vaccines Are Here Preceding Forced Digital ID

The future of vaccines is here, just in time for the coming forced digital ID. This isn’t some sci-fi movie based on some conspiracy theorists’ idea of Revelation where every living being is required to be tagged. Biometric vaccines are real, are in use and have been deployed in the United States.

Biometric vaccines are immunizations laced with digital biometrics, created from merging the tech industry with big pharma. This new form of vaccine injects microchips into the body creating a global ID matrix to track and control every person. Not only has this satanic system already been rolled out, billions may already have been injected unaware.

ID2020 Alliance, a program aimed at chipping every person on earth, has collaborated with GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations) to inject these microchips into the body through immunization.

Where to Live Now: A data-driven look at Ottawa neighbourhoods

Editor

What does community have to do with buying a house? Do people really want friendly neighbours, or do they just want the most square footage for their buck?

In The Village Effect: How Face-to-Face Contact Can Make Us Healthier, Happier and Smarter, Montreal psychologist Susan Pinker cited a 2010 study conducted at Brigham Young University in Idaho that analyzed relationship data for more than 300,000 people over nearly eight years. She discovered that people who were integrated into their communities had half the risk of dying during that time as those who led more solitary lives. In Pinker’s analysis, integration meant simple interactions such as exchanging baked goods, babysitting, borrowing tools, and spur-of-the-moment visits — exactly the kinds of exchanges we saw grow when COVID-19 forced us all to stay home.

For this year’s real estate feature in the Spring/Summer 2020 print edition, we crunched the numbers to find the neighbourhoods where we think you’re most likely to find such opportunities for engagement. Using data available through the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study (ONS), we chose six indicators that we believed would attract those looking to connect with the people around them. Omitting rural areas, we awarded points to each neighbourhood according to where it landed in the ranking. (In the event of a tie, we used a secondary indicator of the same theme to refine the ranking.) You’ll find the ten neighbourhoods that performed the best according to those six indicators listed below, along with resident profiles and notable destinations in each ’hood — though many have been forced to adapt to COVID-19, most are offering delivery and/or take-out, and we are hopeful they will resume normal operations once it is safe to do so.
