This publication highlighted the importance of taking a population-based perspective when examining educational outcomes, and stressed the importance for provinces of developing the ability to track students’ progress through the school system. A working lunch put on by the Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP) to discuss this work was attended by over 100 individuals, including policy makers, academics and educators. IRPP also organized two presentations of this work in Montréal at the Léa-Roback Centre de recherche sur les inégalités sociales de santé de Montréal and the Institute for Health and Social Policy, McGill University in April 2007.
