Challenges of Canada's Decentralized Education System
Waddington, David
College Quarterly, v21 n2 2018
Canada employs a decentralized model of leadership responsible for the development and delivery of education and training. When compared to other countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Canada ranks near the top in academic credentials earned, however performs near the bottom of the same list in numeracy and literacy skills. The goal of this paper is to examine the validity of describing education obtained in Canada as a 'Canadian' education. While a definitive response did not present itself, the investigation does reveal opportunity for further research involving curriculum development, educational standards, and funding related barriers to the delivery of post-secondary education.
