Significant Developments in Local School Systems: Ontario's Educative Society, Volume VI
This volume deals with innovative developments of many different kinds in the local school systems in the years up to 1970. Information was obtained from a sampling of school boards, including the largest. The major purpose is to show what may be expected from an educational organization that gives local authorities a certain amount of leeway to depart from standard procedures. Innovations in teaching, curricular experimentation, changes in the structure and use of school buildings, and the growth of special services are fully covered.

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."
