Summary

The purpose of this project was to inform public debate over education policy in Canada. To this end, the Fraser Institute undertook a series of research projects related to education performance and school choice in Canada. This research resulted in a number of studies focused on accountability in education. The series argues for the integration of market style competition in the Canadian academic landscape by encouraging school choice through the integration of independent schools and charter schools. Further, the series examines gender imbalances in education and advocates some deregulation of home schooling. One of the most significant outputs from the Fraser Institute is the School Report Cards series, which annually surveys how individual elementary and secondary schools perform on a variety of measures.
