Vancouver – ‘Tis the time of year when the rankings come out and so do, the critics of the list.

The Fraser Institute has released its 2017 report card for B.C.’s primary schools, and once again ( and to no ones surprise) the private schools get the top marks.

This always controversial list will continuously be lampooned and the playing field between private and public schools are criticized as not being on a level playing field when it comes to delivering education.

Co-author Peter Cowley notes that most of the high-scoring private schools are not elite institutions with five-figure tuition’s.

The President of the B.C. Teacher’s Federation, Glen Hansman calls the report flawed and not reflective of the situation inside the province’s schools.

He says while the study looks at test scores, that’s about it. It does not take into account socioeconomics, rural challenges and micro economies in neighbourhoods.

To start the never ending debates over these numbers, you can see for your self, the list from the Fraser Institute is here.
