I am writing to comment on the recent Fraser Institute ranking of Sudbury schools. I spent more than 50 years of my long life as either a student or a post-secondary professor and saw thousands of students.
The Fraser rankings, in my opinion, are overly complimentary of the faculties of the highly ranked schools and unfair to the faculties of the lower ranked schools.
I suggest that student performance is generally related to three variables. One is the social class of the parents, the second is the level of education of the parents and the third is the importance attached to education in the home beginning at a very early age. William E. McLeod Sudbury
