Roman Catholic Schooling in Ontario: Past Struggles, Present Challenges, Future Direction?
Brennan, Terri-Lynn Kay
Canadian Journal of Education, v34 n4 p20-33 2011
Ontario Roman Catholic communities have established and maintained their own schools for over 200 years. Yet, their struggle for survival has not come without many challenges, setbacks, and criticisms. With the achievement of open-access at the secondary level and equal funding across the system, many question the legitimacy and worthiness of maintaining two Ontario educational systems. Compounded with the modern faith diversity witnessed in many Roman Catholic schools, those challenges are coming, ironically, from both within as well as between the systems.
