Education by the Numbers from BC Ministry of Education

This week, the BC Ministry of Education released facts to provide a snapshot of British Columbia’s education system. The numbers are sorted by four themes: enrolment and schools, achievement – six-year completion rate 2017-2018, investments in learning, and capital investments. One interesting statistic is that based on student head count in the 2018-19 school year, there were 73,107 students with special needs in the province – 3,422 more than the year before.
