With cottages locked up and not much else to do, people by the millions are going moon- lighting for self-improvement, brilliance, better jobs antf richer lives. It is easier this vear than ever to learn something new, a Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows. Provincial governments and ittinicipalities have speeded up registration procedures, expanded facilities and en- larged teaching staffs. Best of all, perhaps, curri- cula hare been boosted to the point where they contain about anything that could strike your fancy. Com'ses come under such Inspired1 names as The Art of Mixology; Potholes in the Road; The Many Faces of Love. And they treat whimsi- cal topics; gambling; how to build your own airplane; witchcraf how to to- gether in Although registration fig- ures are not yet available, it is estimated that in Toronto one in every four record signed up for more education this year. The picture in most major Canadian centres is much the same, and preliminary figures put the total number of foaek- lo-schoolers at three million. Asked about reasons for the onslaught, education officials advanced a number of points: stigma that night classes are to "impart scien- tific instruction to the working as a complacent To- ronto city council put it in 1892, has "disappeared. break-neck pace of progress makes continual edu- cation and retraining impera- tive. leisure time has to be filled. are eager to learn the language and Cana- dian ways. has become acceptable for women to rejoin the labor force after the children have grown up. living has plunged many people into isolation and loneliness. A case In point was the establishment of education programs by a handful of en- ergetic women in a Toronto suburb in JBC8 after two neighborhood women commit- ted suicide. PICK UP SKILLS "Many go to night school to pick up a said Dr. Rohy Kidd of the Ontario In- stitute for Studies in Educa- tion. "Or they go into a car- eer or productive community work, just because their lives aren't rich enough." So it is that the 40-year-old Toronto father of three is building himself an airplane in the back yard while _his wife is lighting the steering wheel in a defensive driving course. Luigi Capone, a factory worker, is tip-toeing in a bal- let class and Mrs. Gee Yung Sin of Toronto's Chinese com- munity learns English in the basement of a Presbyterian church. Here are examples of how adult education is shaping up across Carada: In Newfoundland, enrolment appears to be running slightly below last year's, although figures are not yet available. The most popular courses arc those leading to academic upgrading for a vocational certificate. The supply of in- structors and facilities is ample. Enrolment hi Nova Scotia is about the same as last year but more classes ars to start in January and enrolment is expected to go up. NOW IT'S ERISTICS At St. Mary's University in Halifax, which IHS one of the largest university adult pro- grams in the province, the most popular courses are in- dustrial management, person- nel relations, photography and computer science. The university offers 24 courses but plans to expand the program and has added one new the science of settlements and en- vironmental planning. The fees for most courses are to The Nova Scotia education department charges no fees for academic upgrading courses and only a small fee for leisure-time courses. With an adequate supply of teachers and facilities availa- ble, enrolment in New Bruns- wick is expected to be higher this year, The most popular courses are those leading to academic upgrading. An in- crease in the interest in French also seems evident. There is no fee for basic education and apprenticeship courses but a fee for all other courses. In Ontario and mainly To- ronto, enrolment is expected to bo higher this year. Educa- tion officials in Metropolitan Toronto put the increase at one-seventh over last year, or people fttore. TOUIl THROWN IN The Continuing Education Directory for Metro Toronto says there are courses and programs available in and around the city. Many courses, particularly in English and elementary ac- ademic subjects, ore free.
