    Hope Commission Report

    The Royal Commission on Education in Ontario (often referred to as the Hope Commission) was established in April, 1945 to inquire into and report on the general state of the Ontario education system. Led by Supreme Court Justice John Andrew Hope, the Commission would not issue their report until 1950.
    Investigating such areas as: text books, education finance, examinations, special education, separate, public, continuation and vocational high schools, teacher training institutions, teacher, inspector and board officials training, and local and provincial school administration; the Committee presented many observations and recommendations.
