TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - February 26, 2016) - The Fraser Institute's Report Card on Ontario's Secondary Schools 2016, the go-to source for measuring school improvement, will be released Sunday, February 28.
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 Ontario secondary schools have improved, or fallen behind, based on seven academic indicators using data from the annual provincewide tests of literacy and math skills.
A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Sunday, February 28 at 5:30 a.m. (Eastern).
School results will be published in the Toronto Sun and Ottawa Sun newspapers.
The complete results for all 676 secondary schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org where visitors can compare schools over a five year period.
Report card author Peter Cowley is in Toronto and available for media interviews.
