I have written several posts about this debacle in the last year.
To make a long story short, here is what The Indiana Department of Education in conjunction with our Public Schools have done:
For the 2002 - 2003 school year they CLAIMED an official graduation rate of just over 91%. I have heard many officials brag about this number over the years.
Now they have gone back and tracked individual students and re-checked their rates. Today they have determined the actual 2002 - 2003 graduation rate in Indiana to be 73%.
In other words, they were wrong by 18%.
And we want these people to teach our children math?
This is shameful and Mitch Daniels should fire a lot of people in The Indiana Department of Education tomorrow...
He will not...
That is too bad.
