This year's report card finds that 37 high schools in Ontario have shown statistically significant improvement over the last four years in Grade 9 academic math and 47 schools have improved in applied math.
The Report Card helps
Where parents can choose among several schools for
their children, the Report Card provides a valuable
tool for making a decision. Because it makes comparisons
easy, it alerts parents to those nearby schools that
appear to have more effective academic programs.
Some schools do better than others
To improve a school, one must believe that improvement
is achievable. This Report Card, like other report
cards from the Fraser Institute, provides evidence
about what can be accomplished. It demonstrates
clearly that even when we take into account factors
such as the students’ family background—which
some believe dictate the degree of academic success
that students can enjoy in school—some schools do
better than others.
