Minority Educational Self-Management in Canada

Minority Educational Self-Management in Canada

(p.141) 7 Minority Educational Self-Management in Canada
Managing Diversity through Non-Territorial Autonomy

Daniel Bourgeois

Oxford University Press

Educational self-management through distinct minority school boards is the most developed minority autonomy arrangement in Canada. Minority school boards are publicly funded and constitutionally enshrined bodies that provide education based on provincial legislation, yet adapted to the minority’s particularities, and manage the human, financial, and material resources to that end. The thirty-eight minority school boards in Canada play a critical cultural role. The chapter describes and analyses the historical and constitutional basis of minority educational self-management in Canada, minority institutional completeness in education, and the importance of distinct school boards in minority self-determination. It also explains how territorial limits imposed to establish schools do not apply to school boards. Finally, this chapter explains why minority school boards increasingly behave like an ‘order of government’.
