Abstract In the education sector, Québec made considerable progress during the Quiet Revolution. These advancements are constantly lauded in history textbooks, where they are given significance beyond their due. Regardless of the indicators that are used, school attendance by young Quebeckers in elementary and secondary schools increased considerably between 1960 and 1975; these figures would increase more quickly than in the rest of Canada, to the extent that starting in 1971, Québec managed to overtake the rest of Canada (see Fig. 58).
