Literacy scores: Spin those results, Kelly Lamrock!

Interesting. The new literacy and math scores for Canadian teenagers were reported today with Quebec leading the pack, followed by Ontario.

I wonder how Kelly Lamrock, currently the president of the Council of Ministers of Education Canada (and ironically the person who is quoted in the Globe story), will spin these results which show that the the top three scoring provinces for literacy are: Quebec, Ontario, Alberta. All of these, you'll note, are provinces which offer early French immersion programs, and start their core French early. It would seem, in my less-than-humble opinion, that these provinces aren't suffering for their decision to follow best practices in second-language education.
