A NEW PATRON FOR THE AR

Kurt W. Clausen

Abstract


In Canada, Action Research needs as much help as it can get. This is because it is largely disadvantaged by the natural predisposition of the country itself. Divided into 10 provinces and three territories, and almost 10 million square kilometers of formidable terrain, it is tough for people of like interests to get together. This has had mixed blessings for Action Research. It has led to a certain amount of decentralization and self-determinacy: If the will is in place, educator-researchers have opportunities to pursue projects with a certain amount of non-intervention that a more dictatorial and closely monitored system would not usually permit. However, it has also led to a great deal of educational solitude, forcing teachers to have colleagues of proximity rather than of shared interest and passion.
