by 1+1 still equals 2 – Mr. Randy Wyrick
Mr. Wyrick, has the Daily Fishwrap you write for – been hired as the new Public Relations firm for the Eagle County School District?
Here is what the ECT’s research team uncovered about the scholastic performance of the Eagle County School District.
The ECT source: U.S. News and World Report – “Education in High Schools”
Below their combined ranking for the High Schools of Eagle County Public School District (RE50)
1 – On a good day you could argue our School District’s (High Schools) have an Average combined score for Reading of just over 50% What happens Randy – if our High School students can only read about 50% of the University’s application for student enrollment?
2 – However our (High Schools) Average score in Math is an abysmal 19% Mr. Wyrick.
FACTOID: Fishwrap Reporter – Randy Wyrick’s recent story (Click Here) insists Public School Superintendent Sandra Smyser is “Going Out on Top” Huh? Top of what Randy? Her Salary Range? (a portion from Wyrick’s story below)
The ECT would like to wish the Poudre School District in Ft. Collins, Colorado – good luck with that one!
ECT readers how do you account for this…
According to the U.S. News and World Report that Wyrick references…there are 458 Public High Schools in Colorado today. Eagle Valley High School (Gypsum) is ranked 38th – putting them in the top 8.29% rank by the ECT’s math.
Strangely…this Gypsum High School is reported (below) as 70% “proficient in Reading” yet only 28% “Proficient in Math”.
It makes a reasonable person wonder…how is it possible that ANY Colorado Public High School – could end up being ranked in the top 10%…with “Proficient in Math” scores as low as 28%?
Indeed, what’s that say about Colorado’s other 458 Public High Schools – and their relative test scores…One wonders what the Reading/Math scores might be for a Colorado High School ranked below the 50% line today…
Last week (Click Here) the ECT folks warned you about the quality of reporting you can expect from the Daily Fishwrap…however the ECT folks didn’t think it would be so soon – that the Fishwrap would demonstrate their skill set again.
Final Note: According to the “Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce”….There’s no greater way to ensure a high-paying career than having a degree in the sciences or math-related disciplines. (Click Here)
