McGuinty’s Post-Secondary Education Strategy
Many blog readers will remember that when Dalton McGuinty became premier of Ontario in 2003 he vowed to be the “education premier.” Yet, university students in Ontario–at both the undergraduate and graduate level–now pay the highest tuition fees in Canada.Â Ontario is also in last place nationally in terms of per-student funding for post-secondary education, and has the lowest professor-to-student ratio in Canada (i.e. the largest class sizes).
It is in this context that I have written an opinion piece on the McGuinty government’s post-secondary education strategy.
