Implications of Declining Enrolment for the Schools of Ontario. A Statement of Effects and Solutions. Final Report. [Incidences de la Baisse des Effectifs Scolaires sur les Ecoles de l'Ontario. Problemes et Solutions. Rapport Final].
Jackson, R. W. B.
In this final report concerning declining enrollments in Ontario, the problems are defined almost entirely in economic and financial terms, and the solutions expressed in those terms. The first section of the report briefly reviews the essential background, the economic and financial constraints, and finally the demographic facts. The arguments and conclusions are supported by reference to recent studies. Section 2, on the effects and implications of declining school enrollments, begins with the school programs, and moves to the supporting services such as education of teachers, and supervisory and other school officers. The machinery of operation, as represented in administration of the system, the selection, appointment and working conditions of all categories of staff follow. Then come school facilities, and the important problems of provincial and local school finance, operating and capital funds, and sources of revenue. The report is completed in section 3, with three appendices that list the recommendations, pull together the data on costs, and present concluding remarks. (Author/MLF)
