People are still trying to figure out what Standard & Poorâ€™s School Evaluation Services meant last week when it identified 16 Kansas school districts as “highly resource-efficient,” as part of a study commissioned by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. One interesting observation by The Hutchinson News, though: Of the “Sweet 16” districts, seven have graduation rates lower than the state average; seven also have lower-than-average attendance rates. Turns out those factors werenâ€™t part of the Standard & Poorâ€™s study. But itâ€™s fair to expect districts being held up as models to be getting students to class and graduation day.
