Subgroups - Look at the WHOLE picture

For the schools that did not pass...did you happen to look at the number of sub-groups each school had to meet? You need to check out the DPI website. Don't look at pass/fail as a whole...look at how many subgroups each school had to pass. I think you would be shocked. Is it fair to look at a school that only had to pass 15 out of 15 subgroups and call them passing...and then look at a school who passed 24 out of 25 and call them failing?

The media needs to start paying attention to the sub-groups before they report on failing schools. But I guess negative sells papers...
