Reviewing Canadian Post-Secondary Education: Post-Secondary Education Policy in Post-Industrial Canada
Kirby, Dale
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n65 p1-24 Nov 2007
Since 2004, a number of Canadian provinces have initiated comprehensive reviews of their respective public post-secondary education systems. This paper examines the ways in which these provincial post-secondary education reviews are consistent with the pervasive influence of economic globalization on higher education and a more market-driven and commercially-oriented ideological outlook on post-secondary education's raison d'etre. Taken together, these provincial reviews provide an informative and interesting repository of the current tendencies in Canadian post-secondary education policy. (Contains 1 table and 2 footnotes.)
