NB moves to articulated post-secondary education

An article in today's Globe outlines New Brunswick's plans for modernizing their education system. While not explicitly engaging the polytechnic model that created consternation some time ago, today's article does make the point that it is the de facto polytechnic model that is being created. Whatever the nomenclature, it's very timely change that is a necessary update to the educational system. Articulated education is clearly an advantage for Canada that gives students more options, and fosters a more responsive educational system that can proactively provide the highly qualified and skilled people needed for today's (and tomorrow's) economy, all in the service of increased productivity.
