The FCSS Story

Fri, 2015-01-09 09:56 -- Anonymous (not verified)

Every child who isn’t stimulated as a toddler, who doesn’t feel safe in grade school, who discovers drugs and alcohol in high school, who battles suicidal thoughts after dropping out, costs Albertans more - economically, socially, culturally.

It is hard to link outcomes and metrics and specific cost-savings to a single child. But we can measure the impact in other ways.
