    Description:

    This chapter examines different education-related indicators. We begin with a general profile of women's educational attainment, followed by the evolution of their situation in time compared to that of men. We then present more detailed data on the different stages of education, from elementary and high school through to university.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X201100211536
    Description:

    Young adults with one or two parents who are university-educated are much more likely to have a degree themselves than those whose parents are less well-educated. This article determines whether intergenerational mobility in university education is increasing. Specifically, whether people whose parents did not complete university are themselves more likely to have finished university than nearly 25 years ago is examined, as is whether the gap between them and people whose parents completed university has narrowed over time.

    Description:

    Streaming or tracking of high school students through different sequences of core courses (e.g., english, science, mathematics) has been practised in Canada and other developed countries for decades. The practice has also been vigorously debated. This article examines the extent to which streaming of tenth-grade students was occurring in four provinces - Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia - in 2000, using data obtained from Cycle 1 of Statistics Canada's Youth in Transition (YITS) Survey. It also focuses on the impact of social background as measured by parents' education levels and family income on the course-selection choices made by 15 year-old high school students. In four provinces -- Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia -- the distinctions between the levels of courses taken by 15 year-old students (open PSE options vs college-only options) were clearest. As a result, the analysis reported here is based on data from those four provinces which accounted for about two-thirds of Canadian 15 year-olds in 2000.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X20050038966
    Description:

    Studies of the postsecondary attainment of young adults are informative, but it is also useful to examine the educational aspirations of teenagers. Such studies profile the value placed on different types of formal education by youth as well as perceived opportunities for upward occupational mobility. This article explores the educational aspirations of 15-year-old visible minority immigrant students and compares them with those of Canadian-born youth who are not part of a visible minority group. It then identifies the most important factors that explain the large ethnocultural differences in university aspirations.

    Description:

    The at-risk child is defined by the author as a "child whose personal characteristics or environmental characteristics" indicate "at a very early age, a strong probability of psychopathologic development." Therefore, in the second section of the paper, the author focussed on intervention strategies for vulnerable children. The third section of the paper summarized resilience and its construct. The fourth section of the paper focussed on risk factors and protection factors. The author concluded his presentation and his paper by asserting that resiliency studies are very complex owing to the multiple interaction between the various environmental factors.
