On another subject: grade retention

from Allison Morris:

This is an interactive flowchart that I helped create aimed to address the topic of grade retention and when it might be necessary to consider having a student repeat a grade.

This article contains another example of bogus statistics: "90% of dropouts did not read at 3rd grade level in 3rd grade." Therefor, that's an acccurate indicator of future performance.

100% of dropouts drank water during the third grade, therefor water-drinking will make you a dropout.

The assertion may be correct, but should be correctly stated stated this way (if the numbers actually back this up): of all the kids who did not read at 3rd grade level in third grade, 90% dropped out.

Come on, we can at least try to educate Allison. She could be the next Director at LANL.
