Post-Secondary Education in Canada: Strategies for Success
Cappon, Paul
Education Canada, v48 n3 p40-45 Sum 2008
Canada has one of the most highly educated populations in the world, but its position is increasingly vulnerable, particularly when considered against the deliberate measures that other leading nations are taking to enhance their postsecondary education (PSE) systems. The absence of national data makes it difficult for Canada to measure its PSE success and to compare the country's progress with those of other nations. To be able to work out a plan for the long-term economic and social needs of the country, Canada needs to track the effectiveness of its investment on PSE. In this article, the author discusses several areas identified by the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) that could serve as a focus for benchmarks and targets for a Canadian education strategy that would enable the measurement of PSE success.
