Judging by recent data, the Jackson County School System has made some significant improvements in meeting its student achievement goals — but there’s still work to be done in literacy, math and the district’s graduation rate.
Kathy Miller, director of curriculum and accountability, highlighted the results on Monday during the first in a series of quarterly updates to the Jackson County Board of Education about student achievement, celebrations and education issues.
For the full story, see the Sept. 14 issue of The Jackson Herald.
If you get this weeks paper, in the main section, you will see 1 article (the one mentioned here is not written by Mike) talking about the school system in a positive manner...1 editorial from Mike complaining about the school system hiring more people and paying for football teams to get to their football games...1 article about the school system being asked to turn over documents by the attorney from the crazy teacher suing the school system (I am sure you will hear more about this crazy vengeful lady in a few weeks)...1 article complaining about the county high school spending money on assistant athletic directors
I think that is a 3 to 1 ratio of negative articles to positive ones...I guess it beats the typical 4 to 0 ratio.
So you think we should ignore school news that doesn't spin the way you want? Also, you failed to point out all the sports coverage in secton B and the other general school news in the paper. News is news; we don't make it positive or negative. It is what it is.
