A social project for education
Following an unprecedented mobilization of students and the Quebec population, the tuition hike was finally canceled. However, beyond this victory, a question remains: should we have to pay for our education? If education is a fundamental right of every human being, shouldn’t it be free?
Free education in Quebec has been a goal since the 60’s. What happened?
It is far from impossible to finance free education – even without increasing the tax burden.
Free education is the first step toward accessible, public and emancipatory education.
Let’s give ourselves the means to achieve this social project.
This site provides a timeline and a set of analysis and research related to the concept of free education. It is meant as a tool for those who wish to understand the history, founding principles and feasibility of free education in Quebec. It also intends to provide ways to mobilize for those who believe that it is more necessary than ever to walk towards free education.
