In an updated report on the state of Ontario’s colleges, the Divisional Executive of the college faculty members in OPSEU/SEFPO calls on government to approach the post-pandemic world with a stronger vision for post-secondary education.

The report — 2021 Update on Education in Ontario Colleges — is a follow-up to the 2014 Report on Education in Ontario Colleges. Both detail a vision for colleges in which “faculty, administrators and the Province are equal partners in ensuring a high quality, publicly funded, equitable college system.”

The report says we face a “clear choice” when it comes to our colleges: “slip further down the slope of austerity, privatization, precarity and reduced quality, or move towards a publicly-funded, student and faculty-centered, high-quality model of education.”

The full report contains 17 specific recommendations for putting colleges back on the path towards publicly-funded, student and faculty-centered, high-quality model of education.
