Profiles of Education in the Atlantic Provinces.
Canadian Atlantic Development Board, Ottawa, (Ontario).
Education systems in the Atlantic Provinces are analyzed in this report to determine the state of their development, the nature and effect of the investment which is being made, and the factors which restrict the contribution of education systems to the development of human resource potential. Part One considers some of the factors which determine the environment within which the education systems operate and examines the relationships of socioeconomic and demographic variables to educational achievement. Part Two compares primary and secondary education in the Atlantic Provinces on an interprovincial and interregional basis. Part Three describes institutions of post-secondary education, their geographical distribution, library resources, qualifications of teaching staff, and financial inputs. Part Four examines school-age and university-age population projections and attempts to forecast enrollments to 1986-87 for each of the Atlantic Provinces. Nineteen tables are appended. (JH)
