More than half of the Quebec students affected by the strike of the Autonomous Federation of Education (FAE) will receive educational support as part of the catch-up plan of the Minister of Education, Bernard Drainville.

The plan provides for various structuring measures to help students in primary, secondary, general adult education (FGA) and vocational training (FP) to compensate for the missed school days in the fall.

Of the 63,096 students in the capital who attend an establishment whose teaching staff is unionized with the FAE, 35,523 will be entitled to additional educational support over the coming months. Among them, there are 21,150 primary school children.
