Students satisfied by Nova Scotia public education

November 29, 2007

A study of Nova Scotian high school grads from the class of 1998 reports that 80% of students felt well-prepared for life after secondary school.  The majority reported that they received the academic and work-related skills necessary for success.  A little more than 50% of respondents felt they could have benefited from additional courses and skill development.  Greater course selection and more/improved guidance on career options were the most common recommendations.
