Excerpt: "Over the course of his career, Fraser Mustard became known for big ideas that linked diverse fields, from medicine to psychology, and later, to education. He devoted his final major report, released less than a week after his death, to early childhood learning, leaving the provinces with a way to measure and compare their preschool systems. Dr. Mustard, and his first-of-its-kind Early Childhood Education Index, gave a passing grade to only three provinces in the report, which was released on Tuesday morning. Despite the low marks, he was optimistic that the provinces would use the index to learn from one another, and continue recent improvements to early childhood programs."
