Reports/Rapports : Dropping Out: Who Leaves High School, and What Can We Do About it?

Source: C.D. Howe Institute.
"While Canada has made progress in the past two decades in terms of lowering
high-school dropout rates, those rates remain unacceptably high for boys and
certain groups". "Immigrants, those living in rural areas and Aboriginals exhibit a worrisome lack of educational achievement compared with the Canadian average".

The author recommends strategies to address the problem. Among them: education authorities should collect and use reliable data on student performance in core subjects, and should experiment aggressively on initiatives targeted to improve education outcomes for vulnerable groups of Canadians.
