Ontario Higher Education Reform, 1995?2003: From Modest Modifications to Policy Reform
Jones, Glen A.
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v34 n3 p39-54 2004
Ontario higher education system has moved far and fast in the past decade. The early 1990s saw "modest modifications and structural stability." Since 1995, under a neo-liberal government in Ontario, major policy initiatives, with objectives not unlike those already at large in western Europe and most of the United States, have quickly followed one another. The author proposes an explanation of the timing and dynamics of the Ontario reforms, describing the driving forces behind reform.
