    If the rate for those failing to graduate is 40% as some have cited that must mean that 60% are indeed graduating. That is a clear majority.

    It is as I described. Many are successful and graduate - a minority does not.

    My point remains, however. We should NOT force our better students to step down a peg, just because they are surrounded by idiots....be those idiots bad teachers, or illiterate 8th graders. That hurts us just as bad, or worse.
    Which is why vouchers are a great idea.
