Stop.....We all know any statistical system of measurement can be interpreted and distorted. We have all heard that figures lie and liars figure.....
However, its the "professional educators" who produced the methodology for the motley graduation rates at Watertown schools. Now they tell us to pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
I know how in government we spin and obfuscate to engage in the covering up of what we are embarassed over. I've done it.
Now, we all know there are a lot of good things going on in the local schools and its fair game to point that out as a counter balance to the lousy numbers.
Just stop telling us to ignore the numbers the system produced. As the overused expression goes...."it is what it is".
