4th Reading

The government announced this week it is allocating $660 million to expand the number of colleges and university spaces in Ontario. 88,000 extra students are expected to be entering post-secondary institutions in 2003 due to the elimination of grade 13 and the baby boom echo. But will the money be enough? Will the institutions actually get the money, conditional as it is on them raising some of the funds? And is the new focus on job-related education a blow to the traditional liberal arts education? Guest: Centennial College President Richard Johnston and University of Toronto President Robert Pritchard.
