His3813 - Illman - Ontario Public Schools
The Ontario public school system brings together individuals of diverse ethnic, cultural, and personal backgrounds. It also combines individuals of varied educational and psychological development together under one roof. It brings together individuals who would, under other circumstances, most likely not socialize or see each other. The public school system gives these individuals a shared experience and history. This experience extends beyond the years spent in school through an individual's role as an alumni. The shared experience in the public school system helps to develop a collective social memory which can allow diverse individuals to come together on a common ground.
