As the major political parties in Saskatchewan gear up for an election campaign, graduation rates are being questioned by the opposition.
The government had promised to increase rates to 85- percent by 2020, and the NDP says no improvements have been made in the three years since the promise was made.
Education critic Trent Wotherspoon says this is an issue which will matter when Saskatchewan residents go to the polls.

The government says rates are going in the right direction and they believe they are on track to reach their goals by 2020 adding they are committed to improving overall graduation rates and point to an almost te- percent increase in aboriginal graduation rates as a positive sign.
