“Why Canadian Education Isn’t Improving” is posted by the Fraser Institute.

Canada’s elementary and secondary education system is failing to improve because special-interest groups dominate decisionmaking processes, and governance of schools is overly centralized, concludes a report by the Fraser Institute.

Despite high levels of spending on education and a growing national concern about the system, Canadian schools are not flexible, and politics often plays too significant a role when it comes to making improvements, says the report by the think tank, based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
