We pride ourselves on tackling complex educational matters and translating sophisticated ideas into clear, understandable language suitable for a wider audience. All issues are examined with an eye attuned to the importance of the background context.  We know how to entice readers, to tell compelling stories, and to make a convincing case.

Looking for an opinion piece, a feature article, a polished report, or a short commentary?

Paul Bennett has established a reputation as a Canadian historian, a connoisseur of…Canadian architectural heritage, an analyst of educational policy, a gadfly and controversialist. All four of the public persona of this energetic and engaging writer are present in Vanishing Schools, Threatened Communities.”
