VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/01/13 -- The Fraser Institute's Report Card on B.C.'s Elementary Schools 2013, the go-to source for measuring school improvement, will be released Monday, March 4 at 6:30 a.m. (Pacific).

The report card provides parents with information they can't easily get anywhere else. In addition to five years of academic results, the report card shows which British Columbia elementary schools have improved, or fallen behind, in terms of reading, writing, and math over the past five years.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwire on Monday, March 4 at 6:30 a.m. (Pacific).

School results will be published in Vancouver 24 Hours and Sing Tao. The complete results for 853 elementary schools will also be available at www.compareschoolrankings.org where visitors can compare schools on their results over the past five years.

Peter Cowley, co-author of the report card, will be in Vancouver and available for media interviews the week of March 4.
