Post Secondary Education- Education

Post-secondary education in Canada typically follows graduation from either a public or private high school, and basic high school level credentials are often necessary before moving on to achieving a post-secondary education. In most cases, universities grant degrees such as a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree, and colleges offer diplomas and certificates. Post-secondary schools in Canada fall under the responsibility of the individual provinces and territories. Therefore the amount of funding they receive and the amount of tuition or other fees that they charge can vary from province to province. The only exception is The Royal Military College of Canada (RMC), which is the military academy of the Canadian Forces and is the only federal institution in Canada with full degree-granting powers. Are you, your child, a friend or family member considering post-secondary education? Do you have questions about the costs involved, and potential financial support available? Are you looking for information regarding specific courses in relation to your chosen career path? Or are you looking for tutoring or help with applications, entrance exams or interviews? Moving on to post-secondary education can be a big step. We’re here to take it with you.

Post-Secondary Education and Technology

A Global Perspective on Opportunities and Obstacles to Development

As the global commitment to educational access has become enshrined in all levels of society, new technologies have also been developed that hold tremendous promise for enabling these goals. This book looks at trends and challenges for expanding access to post-secondary education via technology through a set of case studies and analyses.

State Postsecondary Education Research

New Methods to Inform Policy and Practice

This is an opportune time for researchers in higher education to examine policy via cross-state comparative analyses. Momentous court, legislative and policy developments that impact state-level higher education policy are emerging at a rapid rate. The states have emerged as postsecondary policy innovators in the areas of student financing, institutional accountability, and student access. Following political scientists' ""rediscovery"" of states as units of analysis - because they constitute unique ""natural laboratories"" for testing theory and hypotheses about political behavior and policy adoption dynamics - this book introduces this perspective as an increasingly important tool for researchers in higher education. This book provides an in-depth examination of the challenges and opportunities inherent in conducting cross-state higher education policy research. The authors of each chapter use their individual research projects to demonstrate the array of methodological, theoretical, analytical, and political challenges inherent in conducting comparative state-level policy research. Among the innovative methods described is the use of pooled cross-sectional time-series analytic techniques and event history analysis - now widespread within the disciplines of economics and political science - to shift the unit of analysis from the state to the state-year, thus expanding greatly both the statistical power of the models being tested and the data-demands of those models. The goal is to introduce comparative state-level postsecondary policy research to a broader audience, and to contribute to discussions of both the challenges and the importance of this approach to higher education policy research. The book is intended as a resource for researchers in higher education policy and as a text for higher education policy courses. It may also appeal to scholars of educational policy as well as higher education policymakers.

Postsecondary Education for American Indian and Alaska Natives: Higher Education for Nation Building and Self-Determination

ASHE Higher Education Report 37:5

After decades of national, state, and institutional initiatives to increase access to higher education, the college pipeline for American Indian and Alaska Native students remains largely unaddressed. As a result, little is known and even less is understood about the critical isues, conditions, and postsecondary transitions of this diverse group of students. Framed around the concept of tribal nation building, this monograph reviews the research on higher education for Indigenous peoples in the United States. It offers an analysis of what is currently known about postsecondary education among Indigenous students, Native communities, and tribal nations. Also offered is an overview of the concept of tribal nation building, with the suggestion that future research, policy, and practice center the ideas of nation building, sovereignty, Indigenous knowledge systems, and culturally responsive schooling.

Postsecondary Education for First-Generation and Low-Income Students in the Ivy League

Navigating Policy and Practice

This book examines how previously excluded high-achieving, low-income students are faring socially and academically at an Ivy League college in New England. In the past, research conducted on low-income students in elite schools focused mainly on the admissions process. As a result, there is a dearth of research on what happens to low-income students once they are admitted and attend classes. This book chronicles an ethnographic study of twenty low-income men and women in their senior year at Dartmouth College and follows up with them four and twelve years post-graduation. By helping to bring visibility and self-awareness to low-income students and expose class issues and struggles, the author hopes to encourage elite institutions to change their policies and practices to address the needs of these students.

Feminist Critical Policy Analysis: A perspective from post-secondary education

This text sets out to challenge the traditional power basis of the policy decision makers in education. It contests that others who have an equal right to be consulted and have their opinions known have been silenced, declared irrelevant, postponed and otherwise ignored. Policies have thus been formed and implemented without even a cursory feminist critical glance. The chapters in this text illustrate how to incorporate critical and feminist lenses and thus create policies to meet the lived realities, the needs, aspirations and values of women and girls. A particular focus is the primary and secondary sectors of education.

Preparing for Post-Secondary Education

New Roles for Governments and Families

The contributors begin by examining changes to national and international educational funding policies and the relationship between public and private costs. They focus on the role of families in marshaling the necessary resources, demonstrating that access to post-secondary education is also determined by social capital. The authors conclude that new partnerships between parents, the state, and schools are redefining the various players' roles and commitments to the educational futures of Canadian children.
