As our college system celebrates its 50th year, colleges are delivering post-secondary education to over 220,000 full-time and 300,000 part-time students. That is a great accomplishment, but behind the scenes, all is not well.
The province’s share of college funding is shrinking. College administrators ignore the voice of faculty on educational matters. And more than 80 per cent of those who teach in our colleges are contract faculty with substandard wages and no job security.
The old way of running our colleges isn’t working. It’s time for the province to step in – and get our colleges ready for the next 50 years.
