Every year the Vancouver-based Fraser Institute publishes their report card on BC’s schools. As the Fraser Institute explains, “The Report Card on British Columbia’s Schools 2016 collects a variety of relevant, objective indicators of school performance into one, easily accessible public document so that anyone can analyze and compare the performance of individual schools. By doing so, the Report Card assists parents when they choose a school for their children and encourages and assists all those seeking to improve their schools.”
