It would seem to me that if Edmonton Public & Edmonton Catholic coordinated their dollars and put them into joint buildings & online campus sites, they would both increase their level of student dollars. So if a student such as myself wanted to take a High School course offering of English 10, through Metro Continuing Education (which is Public), then I could also take portions of the course through the surrounding Catholic schools.
So say the literature choice was "Hamlet" at Metro, I could ask to read "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare which is being offered by say a south side Catholic school. Metro couldn't really object as the two plays are similar in length, content & overall storyline. This idea makes sense David, cross pattern overlay courses while being allowed to keep my credits as Public, or converting them over to Catholic. Whatever I feel more comfortable with. No pressure to convert, just the continued excitement of overall learning.
