Hi All -

Need to know what was the norm for schooling children to adolescents in French colonial America / Louisiana as well as other West India colonies, i.e. Santa Domingo.

Thanks,

Steve

The Canadian Museum of Civilization has a page (http://www.civilization.ca/cmc/explore/virtual-museum-of-new-france/education/education-of-children-in-new-france6) about schools in the French colonies of Canada during the eighteenth century. They were mostly organized by religious orders. I imagine that the situation was similar in other French colonies.
