Jean-François Lisée says he would be in favour of a plan to postpone a province-wide elementary school exam next year because it interferes with a Muslim holiday.
The PQ leader weighed in Wednesday on a recent spat between a Montreal school board and the education ministry over the timing of a French exam.
"The goal in this is for kids to succeed," said Lisée, on the eve of Thursday's provincial election campaign launch. "When a school board makes its calendar, there are variables — like the absence of large numbers of students — where the board tries to maximize the amount of children that will be in class.
"This is one of those variables and I would just let them do their work."
