Fuzzy Math on Grad Rates Again

Haven’t we been down this road before?

GCS, again, revised its graduation rates to a point where they now SURPASS the state’s average?

An excerpt from today’s N&R:

“On Monday, Guilford officials said 74 percent of freshmen who entered the district in fall 2002 graduated within four years. That revised rate puts Guilford above the state’s 68.1 percent rate and on par with or better than other large districts. The state this month reported Guilford’s 2006 rate as 63.5 percent,” the article says. See the complete article here.

So who’s telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? I’m suspicious.

UPDATE: See the GCS News blurb and link to the hard numbers here.

E.C. 🙂
