Carter, The Catholic Public Schools of Quebec.

Carter, Emmett G.

The Catholic Public Schools of Quebec.

Toronto / Montreal, W.J. Gage Limited, 1957. 15.5 x 23.5cm. (13), 128 pages. Original hardcover. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear.

As a Roman Catholic diocesan priest, Carter reformed public education for English-speaking Catholics in Quebec and founded both a teachers’ college and an institute of adult education. As a bishop in the London, Ontario diocese he participated in the four sessions of the Second Vatican Council and was instrumental in the implementation of the reforms called for in his diocese, across Canada and in the universal Church. In 1957 he published The Catholic Public Schools of Quebec. Published twenty years after his initial appointment as an inspector of schools, Carter’s book reveals a person fully acquainted with the complex dynamics – both political and religious – of public education in Quebec. In the concluding chapter of the book, Carter emphasizes the place of the parent, the church and the state in public education – a recurrent theme in Catholic education in Canada since the 1700s. He also articulates a “Catholic Philosophy of Education” that addresses intelligence and education, the guidance of the moral life, the nature of the child, the person of the teacher, and the need for a curriculum that meets the needs of all children whatever their academic ability or vocational strengths [From the Talbot School of Theology]
