The Learning Society. Report of the Commission on Post-Secondary Education in Ontario.
Commission on Post-Secondary Education in Ontario (Canada).
The Commission on Post-Secondary Education in Ontario was appointed in 1969 to advise the Ministers of Education and of University Affairs. The Commission was asked to consider, in the light of then-current provisions, the pattern necessary to ensure the further effective development of post-secondary education in the Province to 1980, and in general terms to 1990, and to make recommendations. It was charged with nine specific areas of study, including the determination of student needs, student preferences, numbers of students, types of institutions and facilities required and the interrelations among them, and the costs and methods of financing universally attainable post-secondary education. The Commission was further required to generate public comment and discussion, providing full opportunity for the expression of opinions. The results of hearings, briefs, and a wide range of research studies are reported in the study, organized around three themes: a history of post-secondary education, directions for change, and instruments of change. The Commission makes 126 specific recommendations, reflecting its general conclusion that continuing education is a pervasive molding force which requires flexibility in the post-secondary system.
