Response to the Report of the Commission on Post-Secondary Education in Ontario.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
This document written by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) is a response to the Report of the Commission on Post-Secondary Education in Ontario. The general introduction presents two principles that are considered important in discussing the report: social responsiveness and quality. The best form of social responsiveness is to ensure the preservation of the highest quality of all forms of postsecondary education. The problem is that the quality of education may take second place to the administration of services, or that education in the university will take place in spite of, and not because of, the elaborate bureaucratization of postsecondary education. After studying the final version of the Commission's report, the COU isolated a few subjects of particular importance to discuss comprehensively in this document. These matters are as follows: the place occupied by high standards of quality in the Commission's priorities; the structure of the system; the financing; student aid; and the place of examinations in licensure for professional practice.
