Two Canadian Profs Turn Thumbs Down on Their Higher Ed System

George Leef

In today's Pope Center article, I review the new book by sociology professors James Cote and Anton Allahar (University of Western Ontario), Lowering Higher Education.

Although Canada supposedly has a "world class" educational system that puts a higher percentage of young people through college than in the U.S., Cote and Allahar find that it's just as wasteful as is our system. Rather than offering a valuable liberal education, Canadian higher ed is mostly about what the authors call "pseudo-vocational training."
