    But if a graduate can not balance a checkbook what good is the diploma?, but as least the Department of Education can post high graduation numbers.

        Why would anyone, certainly trust the banks to never make a mistake and properly look out for your finances.

    Something to be very proud of. This rate sounds a good deal higher than much of the rest of the state.

    Hurray…but when you dumb down the standards my Cat could graduate, but still have a hard time counting back change at the McDonalds fast food window!
    It just goes to show you how FAKE and Bogus the numbers are being put out by the Department of Education.

    Morro Bay High for example this year is having such a disaster with the new Common Core Math that they are giving anyone with a test score below a 50% a 50%.
    So how does that help them in Math…it doesn’t but it hides the truth of the Common Core disaster in Math from the parents and community!

      If what you are saying is in fact true, I find it almost comical that people are giving you the the thumbs down. You may not like it, but the facts are the facts.

      Helping kids succeed is always a good thing. Enabling kids, and helping them fake their way through to make some statistics look good is sad and unfortunate.

        Hard for me to admit due to my hatred of government, but my kids are getting a far better education at SLO high than I had in high school 35 yrs ago. It’s not even close.
