一开始,教育系统收到波动水平从联邦政府的资金和被认为是不够的。同时,公民教育的重要性在政府圈子里已经减少,因为移民和多元文化主义在加拿大得到了更多的关注(T和Joshee Derwing R,2004)。
In the beginning, the education system received fluctuating levels of funding from the federal government and the amount was thought to be insufficient. In the meanwhile, the importance of education for citizens in government circles has diminished because the immigrations and multiculturalism in Canada was getting more attention (Derwing T and Joshee R, 2004).
Close to the end of the War II, some federal officials suggested to continue work on Advisory Committee for Cooperation in Canadian Citizenship (CCCC). It was under the Department of National War Services which is also responsible for ethnic affairs. The level of immigrations showed an upward trend, and then gradually the government expanded external bodies such as the Canadian Council of Education for Citizenship, which was a national voluntary organization. It attracted educators who were interested in citizenships (Joshee R, 2004). This was thought to be the complete preparation for education in Canada.
Back in 1970, the government accounted for more than 70% of the university’s operating revenues. In that case, federal funding policies could just explain much of the university behaviors. Dr. O’Malley suggests that during that time the situations may result in excess demand for graduate students or for new doctorates. Therefore it might be possible to overcome the problem by considering some new institutional forms. He also suggested that for future researches, there are a lot of questions remaining, such as testing of models, relationships between information imperfections, further work on university behavior, the understanding of adjustment and of the constraints under which it operates might be fruitfully analyzed using game theory (O’Malley, 1975).
