First published in 1997, this volume examines the enactment of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms precipitated change within educational institutions, affecting all levels of governance, administration and day-to-day teaching. This book illustrates the ways in which such change has transpired by first presenting the significance of the Charter, and subsequently focusing on case law. The book concludes with an analysis of the politicization of the judiciary within the education sector. In essence, the primary objective of this book is to clarify the effects and implications of the Charter on and for educational practice in Canada. The secondary objective is to put the impact of the Charter into a more general political framework.
