Task Force - Teacher Education for the 21st Century

Marilyn Korhonen's insight:

This is very enlightening with regard to distinctions between American and Canadian education and educational philosophy/policy. For example:

 

Graduating not just more students but more students with higher levels of achievement, greater senses of self-efficacy and greater self-regulatory abilities is not only a matter of social justice; it is also in the social and economic interests of the province. The Preamble of the 1996 School Act declares that the purpose of schools is to “enable all learners,” both for their private good and for the public good of “a healthy, democratic
and pluralistic society and a prosperous and sustainable economy” (p. C-11). In order for this to be achieved, particularly in the economic environment that we find ourselves in at present, we cannot afford to leave anyone behind.

 

It shares "left behind" but not much else.
