Spatial Variations of Educational Opportunity in the Publicly Supported High Schools of Ontario.
Vincent, C.
Equality of educational opportunity is a declared aim of the Ontario government. As high schools are one of the most essential links in the educational chain, equality of opportunity in them is vital. This study seeks to establish the causes and consequences of regional variations in educational opportunity with specific reference to publicly supported high schools. Educational opportunity can be defined in terms of physical, staffing, and normative factors. Variations in these either singly or in toto will create inequities. The elements of educational opportunity are in themselves a function of a group of yet other interrelated factors stemming from the human and physical resources bases of the 10 economic regions of Ontario examined. Population density, population growth, and economic growth are positively related, and finances are more readily available in the more urban Ontario areas as opposed to the more rural ones. While inequities exist, there are recommendations which would supplement efforts already expended by the provincial government to achieve equality of educational opportunity for all students in the province.
