Teaching in Yukon.
Yukon Dept. of Education, White Horse.
This pamphlet provides information for teachers contemplating employment in Yukon Territory, Canada. A preface briefly describes the political history and government of the Yukon, and emphasizes the frontier nature of the region. In both English and French, the paper discusses the curriculum, school terms and vacations, the Yukon Teachers' Association, teacher qualifications, the Teacher Qualification Board, salaries, appointments and terminations, resignations, moving expenses, government accommodations for teachers in rural areas, living conditions, citizenship regulations, and benefits. The outline gives details on the Canada Pension Plan; the Public Service Superannuation Act, and disability, life, and medical insurance plans. Profiles of Whitehorse and the 14 rural settlements served cover location, population, student enrollment, number of teachers and teacher aids, transportation and communications services, health services, and recreational activities. The pamphlet includes numerous photographs and a table of long-term climatic data for four Yukon and nine other Canadian locations. (SV)
