I don’t really know – I can only gauge how my district’s schools are doing according to…me. But here are three new sets of data just out:
(hattip to Buckeye Battle Cry)
|163||Chagrin Falls||Chagrin Falls|
|449||Shaker Heights||Shaker Heights|
|724||Upper Arlington||Upper Arlington|
|754||Ottawa Hills||Ottawa Hills|
3. Euclid High School’s graduation rates top in country – I’m particularly excited to hear about this recognition because the graduation year noted in the Plain Dealer article is 2006, the end of the second year of small schools reform implementation. I spent hundreds of hours following the students, parents, teachers, administrators, community stakeholders and reformers from 2004-2006 at that school. I’d love to hear follow-up from them about whether they think that effort is responsible for the results.
