This paper addresses the archaic institution of Roman Catholic education in Canada, as carried over from the mid-19th century, and the coincidence of this separate school administration, publicly funded, proving most helpful in the present. According to this paper, it's an archaic institution dating from a different day, of assumed Protestant/Roman Catholic disunity, and the French/English question in central Canada, now adapts well to high Roman Catholic immigration from diverse parts of the world. This paper shows that old institutions can have unexpected benefits in the present.

From the Paper:

"Public learning in the Province of Ontario continues to reflect some patterns that are rather old, but have proven adaptable, into the present. Of particular interest is the continuation of a separate Roman Catholic educational system, left over from the first half of the 19th century. It was then considered impossible for a secular system to accommodate both Protestants and Roman Catholics, just as the gap between Franco-Canadians and others was seen as a fact of life, as something that a system of universal education would have to address.
