Series/Report no.: OISE/UT Survey
Abstract: The ninth OISE/UT survey finds that, in tough economic times, the Ontario public's support for all types of education has continued to grow. There is a majority support for increased funding of education at all levels and especially for adult education programs. If financial cutbacks must be made, there is consensus in freezing salaries while retaining teaching staff and programs. Voluntary participation in adult education programs has continued to grow among nearly all social groups, perhaps most notably among recent school dropouts. There is also a strong consensus that the proportion of adult paid working time devoted to education and training should be increased.
Description: The OISE/UT Survey was conducted and published annually between 1978 and 1980, and biennially from 1980 to the present. It is the only regular, publicly disseminated survey of public attitudes towards educational policy options in Canada. Its basic purpose is to enhance public self-awareness and informed participation in educational policy-making.
