How Canada compares to the world

From People For Education Newsletter – Toronto

The 2017 OECD Education at a Glance Report  reveals some interesting facts about Canada:
  • At 61%, Canada has the second highest rate of 25-34 year-olds with a tertiary degree (college or university) among OECD countries. Only Korea is higher, with 70%.
  • Canada has the highest percentage of 15-24 year-old students in paid employment among OECD countries – just under 80%, compared to the OECD average of 38%. 
  • 6% of post-secondary graduates are in education, whereas 26% are in business, administration and law.
  • Among OECD countries, Canada, Chile, Korea and the United States spend the largest percentage of GDP on post-secondary education, but they also have the highest share of funding from private sources.

Action Research in Education

This is an amazing way for teachers to show some initiative, make a huge impact on their students, their teaching practice, and student learning. The wider influence, school-wide, is obvious. It is the old train-the-trainer model. It's much more than professional development, and by celebrating research, innovation and achievement, we improvement to profession.

By crowd sourcing Action Research, educators can improve teaching practices.

My first piece of Action Research, was figuring out how to manage my split-grade classroom, back in the day (2000). Not a young teacher, I was amazed at the lack of literature on the subject. Many did research into homework practices, for example. The first thing one must do is research the practice of Action Research! As the editor of CJAR book reviews, I'm always looking for reviews for our journal.

Here are some texts, which provide a starting point.

Please contact us at and visit our website to know more about CJAR.  
Submissions are evaluated through a double-blind peer-review process.  We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines.
