Report on Colleges

The Globe and Mail today published their Report on Colleges, an overview of Canada's community colleges and what they offer today's post secondary education market. There are good articles on college-university articulation, applied degrees offered by colleges to meet demand, and Polytechnics Canada institutions that are catering to demand for applied degrees and applied research. It's clear there is room in Canada for all forms of education, but we do need more programs that enable students to transfer credits. Our education system needs to be responsive to the demands of the students, but also the workforce, as lifelong (and life-wide) learning increasingly become the norm.
