Reviews"Fleming's volumes are without equal, not only in Ontario but across the nation, in their analysis and synthesis of a province's educational development. For all who are interested in any facet of Ontario education, broadly defined, this series will be a ready and authoritative reference."
"... the very weight of the research and its literature and well laid-out presentation makes these volumes invaluable as reference material."
"This scrupulous concern for accuracy coupled with the range of subjects treated explains why Ontario's Educative Society is at the very least an indispensable reference work ... [It] is a monumental study and no one seriously interested in Ontario or Canadian education can afford not to be familiar with the riches it contains."
