CCPA Plans Re-Launch of Education Journal

The release of Our Schools/Ourselves is slated for fall 2000.

The education journal Our Schools/Ourselves, which suspended publication last year, will be re-launched this fall as a publication of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.

The journal provided a forum for some of Canada's most respected authors on education, and served to both analyze issues in Canadian education, as well as to enlighten academics, activists, students and parents about the role of education in our development as a society.

"Since its establishment in 1988, Our Schools has been committed to publishing articles and books on a variety of education issues," said Erika Shaker, researcher for CCPA's education project, and co-editor of the new series. "We're pleased to be adding Our Schools/ Ourselves to our list of publications and see this collaboration as an eminently rich and useful one."

The Centre has focused more specifically on education and education-related issues with the creation of its Education Project in the fall of 1996, and has produced Missing Pieces: An Alternative Guide to Canadian Post-Secondary Education, Tech High, and the Education, Ltd. series.

"Our Schools/Ourselves will be accessible and relevant to all stakeholders in the education system -- elementary, secondary and post-secondary -- providing a much needed forum for discussion, information distribution and collaboration on issues of pedagogy, action, social justice and educational content, on a provincial, national and international basis," added Shaker.

The CCPA is an independent, not for-profit research organiza-tion founded in 1980, and focuses on economic and social policy issues from a more progressive perspective.
