Education has become a battlefield, the classroom the arena where the contest is fought. The 1997 Ontario teachers' strike, the federal government's Millennium Scholarship, and a wave of protests across the country are among the signals that the war is heating up. Alberta stands as a Canadian model of radical education reform, propelled by economic necessity. But is all reform necessarily right or good? -- and who decides? A range of commentators -- teachers, scholars, parents, and others -- discuss the conflict in Alberta's schools.Education, Globalization, and Democracy in Alberta Trevor Harrison, Jerrold Lyne Kachur, Parkland Institute ... Frank Peters has a PhD in educational administration and is a professor in educational policy studies at the University of Alberta.
