MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - October 28, 2016) - On Saturday, Oct. 29, the Fraser Institute will release the Report Card on Quebec's Secondary Schools 2016, the go-to source for measuring school improvement.

It provides parents with information they can't easily get anywhere else by showing which Quebec public and private secondary schools have improved or fallen behind, based on seven performance indicators derived from provincewide test results.

The Report Card also notes performance differences between genders in core subjects such as mathematics.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 5:30 a.m. Eastern.

The complete results for all 459 secondary schools will also be available at
