Feel Good Report Card Signs

Last year when the Ohio Department of Education released their scorecard information on all state schools, the Cleveland Municipal School District scored 1 (that's right ONE) out of 26. FYI the 10th Grade reading score was the only passing entry BARELY squeaking by with a 76.4%, 1.6% above the bare minimum. A very few schools improved their status and new signs were rushed to the printer and hung proudly above the entry door. For all the other schools, that did WORSE, which was most of them, the previous year's sign was left to flutter and fade in the brutal Cleveland elements. Willson Elementary decided to leave the Open House September 2010 sign hanging since there was NOTHING good in a report card for a BRAND NEW half empty school that failed every single category.
