EDUCATION IN CANADA: AN INTERPRETATION
Edited by Peter J. Miller and E. Brian Titley.
Volume 11 Number 1.
In Education in Canada: An Interpretation, editors Brian Titley and Peter Miller have brought together a number of scholarly yet readable articles by respected educators and historians, including W.J. Eccles, J. Donald Wilson, and W.L. Morton. The editors' goal was to explore the question: "What, in short, has been the story and the history of the development of our school system?" Recognizing the scope of this topic, the editors have limited it to developments in Quebec, Ontario, and western Canada. "All educational developments in Newfoundland, the Maritimes and British Columbia. . .receive no mention at all." Given these limits, and an interesting metropolis-hinterland thesis, the text does give "an interpretation" of educational development in Canada from the beginnings in New France through to "the sobering seventies."
Education in Canada: An Interpretation should be required reading for all teachers, school board members, and department of education officials, especially in the West. It really is an interesting book, but I can see little use for it in most high schools, except those where Canadian Studies programs are well entrenched.
