Abstract: This fourth OISE Survey was conducted in the context of an economic recession later claimed by political and economic leaders in Canada and throughout the advanced industrial societies to be the most serious since the 1930s. In this situation, the general public appears to be reaffirming rather than rejecting a faith in education as a vital means for coping with the future. In Ontario, as in the US and elsewhere in the advanced industrial world, this popular faith in the capacity of education is expressed in the high fiscal priority desired for public education and job training in relationship to many other pressing needs for government spending. This faith in education is further indicated in Ontario by overwhelming support for increasing or at least maintaining the current amount of public educational expenditure in relation to the rate of inflation. This survey looks at: public satisfaction, educational funding, accessibility, educational decisions, labour force requirements, skill requirements, education and unemployment, curricular goals, curricular objectives, and curricular content.
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.
