Folks, Canada's education system ranks way above the one in the U.S....at least in certain subjects. I know from comparing what I've seen, that their music program is WAYYY behind. Right now, I'm worried. I have geniune credentials to teach music, but when I look for work, it looks like I'll be competing with average folks from the peanut gallery who have never played before, but all of a sudden took all of the instruments to teach music.
Canada seems to like to do things like have one arts person teach all the arts. I know it's probably a budget thing, but just because perhaps someone can paint does not mean they can play music or act.
Canada may be top-ranked in academic subjects, but some day, their per capita productivity will go down because their creativity is being neglected. Those that can think creatively are the ones that do best in all areas- I really believe that.
