"CITY GLAD, STATE SAD OVER HS GRADUATION RATES"
In the article they incorrectly used the wrong data to prove their case that the Bloomberg Administration's education policy was working. To prove their point here is what they used as data.
- Graduation rates - DOE data NYC 65.5%, State data 60,9%.
- College readiness - DOE data NYC 24.7% State data 20,7%
- Minority Changes - State data shows a drop in the graduation rate for blacks, while the other groups (Asians, Hispanics, and Whites) showed slight gains.
Once again, the DOE publishes suspect data that makes it seem that the failed education policy of the Bloomberg Administration is working when the actual statistics from, the State shows a very different conclusion of failure to close the academic achievement gap, a reduction in graduation and college readiness rates and a drop in black graduation rates.
