The Ontario Secondary Education Review Project: An Analysis of a Provincial Strategy for Educational Change in the 1980's in the Province of Ontario, Canada.
Nediger, W. G.
A study was developed in an effort to generate a series of reports dealing with assessment, evaluation, reaction, and design of secondary education programs in the Canadian province of Ontario. The study objectives included: (1) defining educational goals commensurate with student ability; (2) preparing students for the future; (3) reassessing former educational goals and adjusting the program to meet new goals; (4) insuring better preparation of students for the work world; and (5) meeting the educational needs of students at various levels of ability. Reacting to growing criticism concerning the inadequacies of the present educational system, the Secondary Education Review Project created four committees to provide the functions of steering, evaluation, reaction, and design. Although the project is ongoing and no conclusions can yet be drawn, a number of success and failure factors that are thought to have potential influence on the project include involvement of interest groups, minority government, economic recession, and unemployment.
