    Abstract

    How do parents, teachers, taxpayers and school administrators know if their children attend a good school? Parents, in particular, deserve more information than they can glean from parent-teacher nights or award-filled graduation ceremonies. More meaningful information would allow them to fairly compare their children’s school with others in similar neighbourhoods throughout the province. This study is designed to provide exactly those answers for Ontario schools over the last three years, with a view to identifying schools worthy of I21emulation, or in need of improvement.
