Forging ahead in the movement for student retention and academic success in Québec
The Grandes rencontres sur la persévérance scolaire (GRPS) that were held November 4-6, 2013, almost at the mid-point toward the target set for 2020, represented an ideal opportunity to take stock of the realizations and progress made thus far, as well as to update and share the vision of the policy priorities for the coming years.
This document presents the priority orientations first formulated by a group of 19 experts and experienced stakeholders (see list in annex A), then evaluated and commented upon by more than 375 responders as part of an online consultation that took place between September 10 and October 17, 2013.
This document deals primarily with:
- The main factors behind student retention and academic success
- The main achievements since 2008
- The gaps to be addressed
- The topics for debate
- The priority orientations
