Summary

The purpose of this internship was to assess the BC Ministry of Education spending in order to inform public debate. The intern conducted foundational research analyzing the way that the BC Ministry of Education allocated funds to school districts and the effectiveness of fund allocation. The research indicated that British Columbia may be spending considerably more than they would if they funded school districts on a per-class basis for part time students’ registration. The research conducted during this internship provided the foundation for an education Policy Brief published by the Fraser Institute in 2003.
