Snub doesn’t change data on schools
For the second year in a row, local school administrations have chosen not to acknowledge the school ranking report from Children at Risk.
North East Independent School district officials even went as far as denying a request from the Express-News for a visit to a campus that ranked high in the report.
They said they had not participated in the study. It should be pointed out that school districts did not have to opt in to be included in the Children at Risk school-ranking report.
The Houston-based nonprofit, nonpartisan research advocacy organization that focuses on public policies and the effect they have on Texas children analyzed data collected by the Texas Education Agency. That public information is gathered from all the public schools in the state and is available to anyone for the asking.
