Our Children Our Future. The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Delivery of Programs and Services in Primary, Elementary, Secondary Education. Summary Report.
Newfoundland and Labrador Dept. of Education.
A summary of an inquiry into the educational system of Newfoundland (Canada) presents the model for change designed by the Royal Commission of Inquiry, and the process used by the commission to obtain information. Public opinion on denominational education is examined, and costs of denominational schooling are explored. The commission sought to examine the system in the context of what the students of Newfoundland need and the resources which must be found to meet that need. The commission's 211 recommendations are designed to increase educational achievement, to render the education system more efficient, to involve parents in a meaningful way in their children's education, to provide more flexibility to boards and to schools, to allow access to governance for those now excluded, to increase cooperation among youth-serving agencies, to forge more productive relationships between the education system and other social institutions, and to establish an education system which is accountable at all levels and committed to self-improvement.
