Assessing aboriginal education in B.C. – Report Card

Kootenay Columbia school district ranks as a B.C. leader in aboriginal education in a study released today by the C.D. Howe Insitute. The district earned top marks because aboriginal students in its schools are doing better than expected based on socio-economic factors and school variables.

While Kootenay Columbia is at the top of the list, two districts in second and third place – Abbotsford and Okanagan Skaha – are given special mention for scores that are significantly higher than what could be expected.
