Postsecondary Education Coalition Report

Postsecondary Education Coalition Report broadens debate on funding and tuition

[mainly as originated from the CUPE Ontario site of the same name]
CUPE University Workers know only too well what economist Hugh Mackenzie means when he writes: "...with the exception of the capacity increases required to prepare for the double cohort in the late 1990s, our post-secondary education system has been running on fumes." Read Mackenzie's report, Funding Postsecondary Education in Ontario: Beyond the Path of Least Resistance, prepared for the Ontario Coalition for Postsecondary Education. It was sponsored by CUPE, the Canadian Federation of Students, the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations, the Ontario Public Service Employees Union and the United Steelworkers of America.
