Factors Influencing Educational Opportunity in Ontario
Jefferson, Anne L.
Journal of Education Finance, v33 n3 p290-296 Win 2008
The province of Ontario, Canada, has always claimed a stellar system of education. Unfortunately, this claim has gradually lost its validity as funding has slipped with the associated slide of quality. No longer can the province claim to enable an education system second to none. The discussion in this article is based on the reality that an educational system that promotes education for all and education to promote the opportunity for individual growth is expensive. This cost in the province of Ontario is subject to at least five factors, namely, immigration patterns, number of legally school-age individuals, diversity of students in terms of culture and language, retention rate of students, and geographic realities of the province.
