Public Discourse on Public Education
Published on 01/04/2000
This is the first paper in a series entitled communities and schools. The series will consist of a set of commentaries and stories on various aspects of public education. It will explore the role that schools play not only as a means of educating students but, equally important, as a hub of community life. The communities and schools series was launched by the Caledon Institute of Social Policy with support from the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation. The case for education as a public good in Canada is compelling. Strong public schools and healthy communities that share responsibility for the well-being of youth are crucial to our country’s future. Through stories and commentaries that link theory and practice, we hope to help inform citizens’ understanding of education issues and engage them more deeply in their communities and schools.
