Good news was unveiled Monday at a Mi’kmaq education conference in Nova Scotia.

Graduation rates for on reserve high school students are no on par with the province.

In some areas elementary literacy rates have surpassed the rest of the province.

Educators attribute this to pooling resources and keeping control of education in the communities.
