Now, 83 per cent of students are graduating. That means there are an additionalhigh school graduates in Ontario because of the education reforms of the past 10 years.
Performance gaps between groups of students have also narrowed, and in some cases, closed. For example, elementary students participating in English as a Second Language programs now perform almost as well as the general student population.
Meanwhile, the achievement gap between boys and girls is narrowing, as is the gap between elementary students with special education needs and elementary students generally.
Moreover, students in French language schools continue to perform at a high level, including scoring among the highest on Education Quality and Accountability Office EQAO tests. Ontario has also made significant investments to support our youngest learners.
Our education system goals now include the modernization and integration of child care, making ours a truly connected system from birth to adulthood.
And full-day kindergarten — the single most significant investment in education in a generation — will soon be a reality across the entire province, giving every four- and five-year-old the best possible start in life.
A unique characteristic of Ontario's successful education system continues to be its four vibrant systems, with English and French, Catholic and public school boards contributing to student achievement and well-being. Together, the four systems have contributed to Ontario's reputation for excellence and equity.
