Manitoba Public Schools Act


The Manitoba Public Schools Act is the legislation that governs public education in Manitoba, Canada

Originally known as the Manitoba Schools Act, the legislation was passed by the government of Thomas Greenway in 1890 under highly controversial circumstances The act abolished French as an official language in the province, and eliminated state funding for Catholic schools This provoked a national controversy known as the Manitoba school crisis, and led to a rise in French-Canadian nationalism

This controversy was largely resolved after 1896, and French language rights were restored in the 1980s The current administration of the act has no connection to its contentious origins
