Toronto Board of Education (Ontario). Research Dept.
The primary purpose of this study was to provide an actuarial picture of the extent and nature of the non-English-speaking population in the Toronto Public Schools. The study attempted to ascertain the correlation between reading level and grade level of these pupils. Some indication of their mobility was also sought. Such information has immediate value for organizational and administrative purposes. The results cover population size, pupils' age, language spoken, year of entry into Canada, year of school admission, number of schools attended, present grade level, and reading achievement. An interpretation of the results is provided along with a discussion of implications. (Author/VM)
