Looking at these stats from the C.D. Howe Institute, must say congrats II the students of British Columbia at 6.2% IV having the lowest high school dropout rate. Sad that Alberta is in IInd last place at 10.4%, but glad the figures are out there: openly & honestly. We need II get more parent/student/celebrity role models inII Alberta schools to talk II the kids frankly about how important education is. Eg: Like Edmonton Eskimos for instance.
Not Dropping The Ball,
