The Development of Canadian Education in the Sixties and Seventies.
von Zur-Muehlen, Max
An overview of the development of education in Canada since the early 1960s is presented. The influence of demographic patterns on enrollment at all levels of education is investigated. Enrollment patterns from the elementary through the doctoral level are discussed, and the university participation rate trends are examined. The growth in postsecondary enrollment has been reflected in the increase in the number of degrees, diplomas, and certificates granted for full-time and part-time study. Almost 25 percent of the labor force now has at least some postsecondary education. The mobility pattern of university students is described and trends in teacher supply and demand at all levels of the educational system are discussed. The financing of education in Canada, including student assistance, sources of funds, government expenditures, and expenditures on various types of education, is examined. Canadian research and development funding is also described. Over 40 tables present data on all aspects of educational trends and financial aspects of education in Canada for the period 1960 through 1977. (SC)
