CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2013) - The Fraser Institute's Report Card on Alberta's Elementary Schools 2013, the go-to source for measuring school improvement, will be released Saturday, February 23 at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain).
The report card provides parents with information they can't easily get anywhere else. In addition to five years of academic results, the report card shows which Alberta elementary schools have improved, or fallen behind, in terms of language arts mathematics, science, and social studies over the past five years.
A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwire on Saturday, February 23 at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain).
School results will be published in the Saturday editions of the Calgary Herald and the Edmonton Sun. The complete results for 659 elementary schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org where visitors can compare schools on their results over the past five years.
Peter Cowley, co-author of the report card, will be in Calgary and available for media interviews on Saturday and Sunday.
