U of T and the Rae Review
This is a critical moment for Ontario universities. As the discussion paper issued by the Hon. Bob Rae, Higher Expectations for Higher Education puts it, postsecondary education in Ontario is on the edge of the choice between steady decline and great improvement. For the good of current and future generations, and for Ontario and Canada as a whole, we must chart the course for improvement.
Adequate funding to reduce undergraduate class sizes and bolster graduate education as well as a commitment to bring funding of Ontario universities up to at least the national average are central recommendations in the University of Toronto's submission to the Rae review of post-secondary education in Ontario.
Now is the time to voice your opinion. We invite you to review the University's submission, to provide your feedback to the Rae review and to contact your local Member of Provincial Parliament. Your opinions are important - make them heard.
