Capilano speaks out on lack of national PSE strategy

November 1, 2007

Capilano College's president, Greg Lee, says Canada needs a federal PSE ministry if higher education is to succeed as a sector.  The lack of national data on students and student performance is the most visible side effect of the problem, but the lack of national coordination is also felt in many other areas such as the Canada Student Loans program, scholarship programs and federal research projects.  Canada has no national goals regarding education and is unable to benchmark against other developed countries.
