COLLEGES OF APPLIED ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY--BASIC DOCUMENTS.
DAVIS, WILLIAM G.
A SYSTEM OF 19 COLLEGES OF APPLIED ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY IS PROPOSED FOR ONTARIO. PRIMARILY FOR COMMUTERS, THE COLLEGES WILL HAVE NO (OR FEW) DORMITORIES. THEIR MAJOR PURPOSE WILL BE TO PROVIDE (1) COURSES BEYOND, OR UNSUITABLE FOR, THE SECONDARY SCHOOL, (2) PROGRAMS FOR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES WHO WILL NOT ATTEND A UNIVERSITY, AND (3) EDUCATION FOR ADULTS AND YOUTH, REGARDLESS OF PREVIOUS EDUCATION. ALTHOUGH EACH COLLEGE'S PROGRAMS WILL BE DETERMINED BY LOCAL NEEDS, THE SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE A VARIETY OF TECHNICAL AND OCCUPATIONAL CURRICULA, PLUS REMEDIAL, UPGRADING, AND RETRAINING PROGRAMS. NO PRESENT NEED IS SEEN FOR TRANSFER OF COLLEGE-PARALLEL COURSES, AS THE EXPANDING UNIVERSITY SYSTEM WILL PROBABLY BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE ITS APPLICANTS. CENTRALIZED FINANCING HAS BEEN SELECTED AS MORE EFFICIENT THAN ESTABLISHMENT AND COORDINATION OF A PROVINCE-WIDE SYSTEM OF LOCAL ADMINISTRATIVE AND FUNDING AGENCIES, ALTHOUGH THERE WILL BE LOCAL BOARDS OF GOVERNORS AND LOCAL ADVISORY COMMITTEES. BECAUSE OF THEIR EXPERIENCE IN VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL TRAINING, THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, RATHER THAN THE DEPARTMENT OF UNIVERSITY AFFAIRS, WILL ADMINISTER THE SYSTEM. THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES THE FULL TEXT OF THE ENABLING ACT AND REGULATIONS, WITH THE OPERATING PRINCIPLES FOR THE SYSTEM. (HH)
