This book offers both a warning and an invitation: it warns that public education is in deep trouble in Canada and that, one way or another, it will change markedly in the near future.
Those changes can come either by realistic planning informed by a sense of the fundamental and worldwide dimensions of the challenges Canadian public education currently faces, or simply by tightening the fiscal noose and watching what happens. If we decide to plan, Paquette argues, it means facing up to what is really a revolution in Canadian education funding--a revolution linked to the expansion of a new high-tech economy and to the pressures for equity amidst growing poverty and immigration.
First published in 1994, the analyses and prescriptions offered in Publicly Supported Education in Post-Modern Canada remain relevant to the educational challenges of today.
