Fraser Institute's Annual B.C. Secondary School Rankings Coming Tuesday, April 8

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 7, 2014) - On Tuesday, April 8, the Fraser Institute will release its Report Card on B.C's Secondary Schools 2014, the go-to source for measuring school performance.

The Report Card ranks 293 public and independent secondary schools based on seven indicators using data from the annual provincewide exams administered by the B.C. Ministry of Education.

It helps parents and educators compare schools (in small towns like Ladysmith or big districts like Vancouver) by showing which schools have improved and which schools have fallen behind, and demonstrates how perceived barriers to learning (special needs, for example) are often overcome.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Tuesday, April 8 at 6:30 a.m. (PDT).
