Supervision in the Schools of the North-West Territories and Saskatchewan, 1884-1953
Ward, Brian Stafford
The present· system of education in Saskatchewan has evolved from legislation and regulations established in the latter part of the nineteenth century, when education in the West became a responsibility of the Territorial governments. In the intervening years there have been great changes in all aspects of the educational programme. Traditionally, supervision has been inspectoral in nature, but striking changes in the system of inspection and supervision of the schools are apparent when one compares the practices of the nineteenth century with those in use today. An examination of these changes and an evaluation of current practices in the supervisory programme should contribute to an understanding of the development of the educational system in Saskatchewan.
