VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 7, 2014) - The Fraser Institute will release its Report Card on B.C's Elementary Schools 2014, the go-to source for measuring school performance, Monday, March 10 at 6:30 a.m. (PST).
The Report Card ranks 982 public and independent elementary schools based on 10 academic indicators using data from the annual Foundation Skills Assessments (FSAs) administered by the B.C. Ministry of Education.
It helps parents and educators compare schools (in small towns like Dawson Creek or big districts like Vancouver) by showing which schools have improved and which schools have fallen behind, and demonstrates how perceived barriers to learning (language, for example) are often overcome.
A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Monday, March 10 at 6:30 a.m. (PST).
