Common interests, uncommon goals : histories of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies and its members by Vandra L Masemann( )

27 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES) was established in 1970 as an umbrella body which brought together five national and regional comparative education societies. Over the decades it greatly expanded, and now embraces three dozen societies. This book presents histories of the WCCES and its member societies. It shows ways in which the field has changed over the decades, and the forces which have shaped it in different parts of the world. The book demonstrates that while comparative education can be seen as a single global field, it has different characteristics in different countries and cultures. In this sense, the book presents a comparison of comparisons

An evaluation of the Career development credit course by Edward B Harvey( Book )

9 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assessment of the Career Development Credit Course (cdcc), a career planning course, instituted in twenty-one Ontario secondary schools to prepare students for further education or for the labor market is reported in this document. Data reported are based on questionnaires completed by 1,789 sample and control students who have taken the course and are still in school or in the labor market, and on an in-depth interview with teachers of cdcc. Chapters are organized as follows: Chapter 1 describes the scope and objectives of the study. Chapter 2 deals with background characteristics of cdcc respondents and control respondents, and chapter 3 contains a discussion of the expectations, aspirations, and employment experiences of the two groups. Chapter 4 deals with information concerning students' experience with cdcc. Chapter 5 discusses the teaching and evaluation of cdcc from the teachers' point of view. Chapter 6 reports findings on male/female differences in the use of cdcc including the following: Females are more attracted to this type of course, are more highly motivated, and have higher (short-term) aspirations than males in the course; the two predominant career paths chosen by males and females in the study deviate little from traditional ones of the past generation. Chapter 7 presents the conclusion that cdcc is fulfilling many of the purposes for which it was established both for students still in school and for those already in the labor market. Appendixes contain forms and materials used in the study. (Ta)
Occupational graduates and the labour force by Edward B Harvey( Book )

10 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The follow-up study of 2,101 students from occupational programs in Ontario secondary schools reported in this document is retrospective and longitudinal in nature. The study was intended to ascertain the effectiveness of the occupational program in enabling graduates to secure employment and to hold a job, and to assess the relation to and influences on occupational graduates of other background and school variables. The actual employment experiences of occupational graduates and the relation of their training to these experiences were studied and the effects on students just completing a two- or three-year occupational program in 1973 were examined. A baseline survey was carried out concurrently with the follow-up survey, and personal interviews were conducted to supplement the results of the follow-up survey and to provide a cross-check on them. This report is organized as follows: Chapter 1 outlines the scope, objectives, and method of the study; in chapter 2 the results of the follow-up survey in the three areas of school, job, and background information are examined. In chapter 3 these responses are discussed with reference to patterns of variation by school variables. A more in-depth view of the world of the occupational graduate is presented in chapter 4, based on interviews with graduates. In chapter 5 the responses to the baseline survey are discussed, with additional reference to patterns of variation by sex. Chapter 6 discusses findings and conclusions. Appendixes contain forms and materials used in the study. (Ta)
An evaluation of the student guidance information service by Edward B Harvey( Book )

13 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research was undertaken for the general purpose of evaluating how successfully Student Guidance Information Service (sgis) is meeting the occupational and educational informational needs of students in Ontario high schools. The research design was based on a stratified multi-stage cluster sampling procedure of 50 representative sgis user schools and 20 non-user schools, drawn proportionally from the nine administrative regions of the province in such a way as to reflect the degree of sgis participation in each region. The main questionnaire contained questions in four areas of concern: general school information, background information, aspiration information, and SGIS-user information. In addition, 207 sgis users were interviewed in depth concerning the place of sgis in their decision-making. The report was organized to reflect the conceptual design of the study. After the introductory chapter, Chapter 2 gives a detailed breakdown of user/non-user responses to the questionnaire. Chapter 3 contains a discussion of the influences of background characteristics on the aspirations of users. In Chapter 4, the relationship of school experiences, aspirations, and sgis use are compared. Chapter 5 deals with the relationship of aspirations and sgis use. Chapter 6 gives a very detailed comparison of the use of guidance facilities among sgis user and non-user populations in relation to sex, course orientation, and future plans. Chapter 7 contains a detailed summary of findings, and points the way to the major implication of this study; that ways can be found to increase the effectiveness of sgis in reaching those who are at the moment not benefitting from it to the greatest degree possible.

Implementing race and ethnocultural equity policy in Ontario school boards by Karen Mock( Book )

7 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the findings of a survey of all school boards in Ontario (Canada) concerning the status of policies to ensure racial and ethnic equality. Of the 124 boards surveyed, 100 responded. The following major findings are presented: (1) 39 boards have policies in place, three other boards have completed draft policies, and 22 boards have begun policy development; (2) the size, structure, content, and format of the policies vary widely; (3) boards with policies in place usually have related policies on multiculturalism, heritage, language, employment equity, racial harassment, and curriculum guidelines; (4) a small number of northern rural boards have used limited resources to develop policies, but most boards that have developed policies tend to be larger southern boards with greater resources; (5) the key factors to successful policy development and implementation were senior administrator support, the desire to eradicate racism, adequate resources, community involvement, clearly outlined responsibilities and accountability, and effective inservice training; and (6) boards expect leadership and modeling from the Ministry of Education. Statistical data are presented in 16 tables and two graphs. A 149-item bibliography, a list of survey participants, and copies of the survey questionnaire, in both English and French, are appended.

A tribute to David N. Wilson : clamouring for a better world( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume was commissioned by the World Council of Comparative Education Societies, in memory of their Past President, David N. Wilson, who died on December 8, 2006. Professor Wilson was also President of the Comparative and International Education Society of Canada, the Comparative and International Education Society (US) and the International Society for Educational Planning. A call for papers was sent out to his colleagues worldwide, and many of his colleagues, friends and former students contributed chapters to this book. David N. Wilson was educated at Syracuse University as an educational planner, and he had a lifelong career at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. His main interests are reflected in the five major themes in this book: Africa and Development, Technical and Vocational Education and Training, Cross-Cultural Issues, Policy Development, and Comparative Education. Each author places his or her work firmly within these areas of interest and explains how their work or life experiences were influenced by him. Several of his children also contributed to the Introduction, and Crain Soudien, the 2007-2010 President of the WCCES, wrote the Preface. Together, all of the chapters provide a fitting tribute to a man whose heart, in the words of his former student Suwanda Sugunasiri, was always "clamouring for a better world". This work was supported financially by the Comparative, International and Development Education Centre at OISE/University of Toronto and morally by his colleagues in every part of the world."--Publisher's website
