Review: "Based on information from a 1999 Statistics Canada national survey of 34,000 households, Preparing for Post-Secondary Education examines changes to national and international educational funding policies and the relationship between public and private costs. Contributors focus on the role of families in marshalling the necessary resources, demonstrating that access to post-secondary education is also determined by social capital. The authors conclude that new partnerships among parents, the state, and schools are redefining the various players' roles and commitments to the educational futures of Canadian children."--Jacket.
