He's deciding to manipulate the graduation rate numbers like ol' Heath did:
All of these numbers mean the district will see at least a 73 percent graduation rate. If the district is able to catch 100 students of the almost 500 who could graduate this summer, the district could see graduation numbers top 75 percent.
It is in line with Superintendent Pedro Martinez’s goal to hit an 80 percent graduation rate by 2015, something he said will be in line with graduation rates across the country.
It's all manipulation of how students are counted.
Manipulation of figures is one of the features of the Broad Academy.
