Geography Closely Linked to Achievement

According to the Toronto District School Board Research Report of June 2010...

"It is interesting that Geography is a slighter stronger predictor of future achievement than Mathematics (although the differences are minor).  This is important to note because current educational practices emphasize Literacy and Numeracy outcomes, and these are often translated as English and Mathematics.  Geography and Science also have Literacy and Numeracy elements that are part of integrated curriculum.  Their strength in predicting future achievement shows the importance of examining a broad range of subjects (a reason for the importance of credit accumulation, for example), and the potential limitations of focusing on a narrow range such as English and Mathematics only."​
