I saw a stat about a public school that raised graduation rates from 55% to 82%.
Here’s the problem: raising graduation rates in most situations means “We found a way to get kids to sit in their chairs longer!”
We need to change school, not keep kids in their seats longer.
A high school graduation means a kid sat in a chair for a certain number of hours.
When are we going to start talking about how to make sure kids are ready for life after high school?
