Update '84. Results of Initiatives Identified in "Issues and Directions."
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto.
In 1980, the Ontario Ministry of education published "Issues and Directions," a set of initiatives drafted in response to the effects of declining school enrollments in Ontario. This publication is a retrospective report, looking back at the initiatives set out in "Issues and Directions" and reporting on their results as of March 1984. After a brief introductory section, the remaining six sections are organized according to the major groupings of information in "Issues and Directions": (1) educational goals, program organization, and curriculum; (2) educational finance, operating grants, and school accommodation measures; (3) the teaching profession, teacher education, certification, and professional development; (4) governance and administration; (5) French-language elementary and secondary education; and (6) anticipating and preparing for the future. Within each section, results are grouped by topic. Summary tables have been included to facilitate the linking of initiative results with the two- and three-starred items of "Issues and Directions." A list of references is provided, along with a guide to acronyms. (TE)
