The overall goal of this series of papers was to set the agendas of engaged citizens and policy decision makers, and inform their debates over current and emergent education policy issues by producing a series of high-quality analyses relevant to current and emergent debates. Because the issues facing primary, secondary and postsecondary schools differ widely, the series was conducted in two stages, with the first stage focusing on primary and secondary school issues. Max Bell Foundation helped support the six papers in Stage Two, which focus on post-secondary education issues, as well as communication of the complete series.
