Description: In this follow-up article to the article which appeared in the Canadian Music Educator Vol. 34, No. 5, Bartel and Shand present the results of a second survey of Canadian school boards about music education policy. They describe important differences in the two populations sampled. In the first survey (about the 1989-90 school year) a random sampling of school boards were contacted, with persistent follow-up from the researchers. In this second survey (about the 1990-91 school year), the questionnaire was sent to 424 boards of education, in eight provinces with no follow-up from the researchers. They present statistical tables comparing the response to the six survey questions in the second survey with the results obtained in the first survey. This second volunteer sample reported a much higher percentage of boards creating curriculum guidelines or resources for music instruction during the previous ten years, and also a higher percentage of schools controlling money for music programs. Volunteer bias may account for some of these response differences. Due to the quick rate of change in education, these results can form the baseline for future studies.
