For at least the next 15 years, the report says, it will not be necessary lo build any new campuses, and "indeed, we may choose never to build it would provide personalized, long-distance education in the student's home. It would not grant degrees, but it would grant credits for transfer to any and all other Alberta education systems, The report suggests that while the current trend is toward declining student enrolments, particularly at universities, the worm will lurn in the next few years. However, more types of higher education systems should by then be "they're not only immoral, they're patently absurd." The existing system in which a universities commission oversees the province's university operations and a colleges commission oversees colleges "must be Dr. Worth said. While terms in the report are gentler, Dr. Worth said in an interview that the commissions system "gives carte blanche to a few educational professionals to call all the shots for longevity will increase the average age of Albertans in the next 30 years, and the population will double to more than three million. By 1970, Alberta's cities had 71 per cent of the province's population, with the highest rate of urban growth and population mobility In Canada. By 2005, more than 90 per cent of the people will live in cities 70 per cent of them in Calgary and Edmonton.

Thus, existing institutions can be expanded to the society of the future must have a universally adequate education, a new delivery system is necessary, particularly for learning beyond high school. The Alberta Academy and similar projects would greatly improve the existing system, but the Worth report says have absolutely no accountability to the public or to the students and faculty and other individuals Dr. Worth said. "They are Just another level of bureaucracy." He said the inslitutlons themselves should be given more autonomy, leaving any necessary co-ordination to the The value of all goods and services produced in Alberta (Gross Provincial Product) in 1970 was billion; by 2005 it will be S56.1 billion.
