Montreal Board of Education Recognizes Four Jewish High Schools

The Protestant Committee of the Montreal Council of Education was disclosed today to have granted recognition to four Jewish high schools in Montreal, thus entitling them to the benefits provided to recognized high schools.

The Canadian Jewish Congress said that the schools were the United Talmud Torahs, the Herzliyah high school, the Lubavitcher Rabbinical College and the Beth Jacob School for Girls.

Such recognition means that the Protestant School board of Greater Montreal will pay for each child in its Jurisdiction attending the four high schools tuition fees of $200 and an annual allowance of $12 per child for textbooks.

The Legislation for such grants also stipulates that recognized independent secondary schools having more than 100 pupils of whom at least 60 are in grades 10 and 11 are entitled to a basic subsidy of $2,000 per grade and an additional $75 per pupil. Other recognized independent secondary schools are entitled to a subsidy of $75 per student.
