It was announced this morning that the high school where I work has been named a Blue Ribbon School. One of my students exclaimed, “How is that even possible? Our school has the highest college dropout rate in the area because even kids who do really well here can’t make it in college.”
I asked where she got that statistic.
“Oh, I don’t believe in statistics,” she said. “That’s just what I think.”
Aaaand, your credibility just plummeted.
