dc.description.abstract This study is concerned with the orderly implementation of both the comprehensive school program and the equalization of educational opportunity in Nova Scotia, and is limited to a consideration of the events preceding major revision in school jurisdictions. The study will cite and examine problems encountered in the establishment of amalgamated school boards and will concern itself with the proposal of a program of equal educational opportunity in West Hants. Due to the limited scope of the study and the recency of developments pertaining to the realignment of school jurisdictions, sources, of necessity, have been primarily restricted to Departmental publications and personal research. Need for the study is indicated by the fact that West Hants is now isolated from the rest of the Province by two large amalgamated school districts and the Halifax Municipal School System. The study is significant because of the recently initiated investigation by the Department of Education to determine how West Hants school jurisdictions might be operated with greater financial and educational economy.
