THE FRASER INSTITUTE’S annual rankings of BC elementary schools was released earlier this month, and Kamloops schools didn’t do so hot.
St. Ann’s was the first rated Kamloops school at 106, while Pacific Way was the top rated local school in the public district at 143.
It gets worse from there, with the rest of the local schools spread out throughout the list until it finally gets to Arthur Hatton down at 853.
In a way, the list has some value, and in another way, it has very little value.
