The headline reads Dropout rates below 1%. Eight paragraphs into the love fest we find out what (pat on the back) I was just complaining about a few weeks ago.
Drop Out rates
Governor Lynch is all about his success at reducing Drop Out rates in New Hampshire. (The number of high school age kids who leave school without graduation or achieving a recognized equivalent.) He even has a goal. New Hampshire will have a zero percent drop out rate by 2012. And based on the available data, I think he will succeed, but not in reducing actual “drop outs” to zero.
