  • A Sampling Survey of Response to The Crisis in Canada’s School Libraries
    The Crisis in Canada's School Libraries makes the case that "an investment in school libraries and teacher-librarians provides the sorts of dividends that educators now seek from public school funding: better student achievement, improved literacy and reading skills, and enhanced readiness to succeed in a post-secondary environment".
  • Education Indicators in Canada summarizes data on education funding, student achievement and the nature of the school-age population in Canada.
  • Based largely on teacher and student surveys, this report attempts to document the state of English-language Canadian literature in high schools and to present "pragmatic suggestions on how to ensure that Canadian students and teachers are adequately encouraged to use Canadian literature in schools".
  • This report, based largely on survey work done by People for Education, argues that "nearly a decade of cuts to funding for both education and culture have proven devastating for arts programs in Ontario schools".
  • Based on input from 31 stakeholders who contributed to focus group sessions, interviews and questionnaires, this report, prepared by Hill Strategies Research for the Ontario Arts Council, summarizes qualitative research into the financial realities and artistic and business practice in Ontario's theatre for young people sector.
