We have heard things like this before an personally I think that it is just a load of crap.

"Hamilton's high school non-completion rate improved from 27% in 2000 to just 19.9% in 2010. That's good news, but Hamilton still slightly lags the provincial average."

This will always be the case because Hamilton has cheaper housing stock that can accomodate low income people.

I think the bigger issue is that spending 6 hours per day in the classroom is not something everybody is cut out for. There needs to be a better emphasis on trades and apprentices in the high school level where non-academinc students can gravitate to. I remember when I was in high school there was very little emphasis on trades, it was all college and university. Not one person from some trades council came to speak to us about trade related careers.

Currently we have too many idiot MBAs, and women's studies graduates and not enough people who can fix your car, roof, toilet, or cook you a decent meal.
