Pathways to Success
Those results are rather alarming for Canadians.
Canada scored a disappointing 24th among the nations of the world! Sweden scored the highest! Iceland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Belgium, Hungary, New Zealand, Slovenia, Austria, Netherlands, U.K., Germany, Italy, Japan, Portugal, South Korea, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, U.S.A. and Australia all came ahead of Canada!
That means that the young kids (0-6 years old) in all those countries have a better chance of success than the kids in Canada! Maybe Canadian kids catch up when the enter grade school. That's possible. But I think parents would want to make sure their kids have the best opportunity for success as early as possible!
At present, we're not sure on how we address this concern. More information will be presented in the weeks to come. As a former educator, this whole process facinates me. We need to make sure that young Canadian parents have all the tools and strategies available to make sure their kids are successful in the future. Stay tuned, there's more coming!
