The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test: Mr. Harris's High-Stakes Version of B.C.'s Foundations Skills Assessment.
Allingham, Philip V.
English Quarterly, v32 n3-4 p68-69 2000
Suggests that Canada's public education system continues to successfully enculturate and educate students of varying abilities and vocational aspirations. Claims that if the Ontario Literacy Test succeeds in undermining public confidence in the present system, the Harris government will have set the stage for the system's demise by creating a two-tiered educational hierarchy of have and have-not institutions.
