Just one in 10 in B.C. finds daycare affordable
« on: August 08, 2009, 12:46:45 PM »
Only one out of 10 British Columbians with kids is happy about the affordability of daycare, a new poll has found.

In fact, British Columbians are generally more unhappy with their education and health care systems than other Canadians, according to results of the poll, conducted by Angus Reid Strategies.

Only 13 per cent of British Columbians with children said the affordability of daycare is good or very good, compared with 31 per cent of Canadians.

B.C. has less satisfaction than the rest of Canada in other areas of education, too. Five per cent fewer B.C. parents think the overall quality of primary education is good or very good than in the rest of Canada.

And although B.C. parents are more likely to say secondary education is good or very good than those in other provinces, parents of high-school kids think teaching quality in science, math, social studies, English, French and other languages is worse than in the rest of Canada. B.C. parents are also more likely to say that high-school classes are too big.
