[LCSD] Information!

My inbox had some interesting stuff in it this morning. First, a graph showing the dropout rate for LHS for the last ten years:

Rick Alexander's statement opposing his being recalled:

School performance is down; drop outs and transfers remain high.

"High," of course, is a relative term. It would be perfectly within the realm of reason to suggest that Alexander believes that 4.6% is still too high, even though it is less than half of what it was a decade ago. However, the use of the word "remain" suggests he doesn't believe it's falling.

You can draw your own conclusion about how informed Mr. Alexander is about the number of students who are dropping out.
