Cégeps help improve graduation rates among men: Journal

February 22, 2022
The Journal de Montréal has released a series of editorials about the cégeps that have the best graduation rates among men in response to Québec’s challenges with lower graduation rates among men. The Journal reports that women enrol in and graduate from cégeps at a much higher rate than men. Fédération des cégeps President Bernard Tremblay noted that the issue is apparent in each step of the educational system, from high school through university. Across the 52 public cégeps, the Journal noted that men tended to have higher-than-average graduation rates in programs such as engineering and police techniques, as well as at institutions such as Cégep de Rimouski, Cégep de Jonquière, and Vanier College. Cégep de Sorel-Tracy and Cégep Baie-Comeau ranked highly in the natural sciences, while College d’Alma and Jonquière led in the human sciences. Journal de Montréal (1) | Journal de Montréal (2) (QC)
