Readin', Rightin' and Rithmatic
Looks like the CPS continues it's ascent. Pretty impressive honestly, in 1999 only 47 percent of students in the cincy public school system graduated. Five years later it's 72.1%. Now I will admit, I don't follow this closely enough to know whether this number is being measured the same way as it was 5 years ago, and this is an honest increase in graduation numbers, or if things have changed. But giving it the benefit of the doubt, that we're talking apples to apples, that is an impressive improvement. Thought it does still mean that more than 1 of every 4 students does not graduate, it's a lot better than 1 out of every 2.
