Making the Grade? Education Trends in Northern Ontario
December 3, 2015 | Dr. Mike Commito
This commentary from Northern Policy Institute found that English and French Catholic secondary schools are in line with and often exceed the provincial average graduation rates for both four and five year completions. A gap exists, however, between Northern Ontario and the rest of the province when it comes to overall education attainment levels, graduation rates, and Indigenous education.
According to author, Dr. Mike Commito, the education system in Northern Ontario may have come full circle, with mobile training centres helping to alleviate the logistical issues of bringing education to remote communities throughout the region. He also highlights the benefit of ongoing experiments with digital and remote learning.
