Report of the Superintendent of Education for Lower Canada, for the Scholastic Year, 1846-7 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Report of the Superintendent of Education for Lower Canada, for the Scholastic Year, 1846-7 Sir, - I have the honor herewith to transmit to you my Report on Elementary Education in Lower Canada, for the Scholastic Year 1846 - 7, and to request that you will be pleased to take the first favorable opportunity Of submitting it to His Excellency the gov cruor General, in order that it may be thereafter laid before the other branches Of the Provincial Legislature. In drawing up this Report, I have not allowed myself to dwell' for an instant upon the cogent reasons we have for ensuring to the people the benefit Of an education adapted to their position and to their peculiar wants, nor upon the great advantages which must necessarily arise from such education, if it be sound and well directed, in its triple relation to morality, religion and physi cal well being. I have therefore had to deal only with the means Of successfully diffusing education; but unhappily there is, with regard to these means, a great diversity Of Opinions, upon which the Legislature will have to decide, and will doubtless do so in enacting a per manent law upon the subject.
