If we turn out 20 percent bright kids, and all the others are duds, i guess we will have to live with it?
With the internet today our schools are given a rating. ive said this before, a friend had a very nice home here at a good price and couldnt sell it. he kept lowering the price and then he asked his realtor what the problem was and she answered him as follows
"ive had quite a few young families look at the home and love it, but they look at the school ratings and say that they want their children to have a better oportuninty"
The home owner finally just rented the home out. And I might add ive had many conversations re this with our educators, and they say "but the top ten percent of our kids do very well"
I dont know the answer, but I would like our town to do better because it effects everyones bottom line.
