It's Always About Percentages!

I guess they don't teach Statistics in public schools either. If you go to the top law schools in the nation (Harvard, Yale, etc.) They specifically mention the PERCENTAGE of students that pass the Bar exam at the end of their school term (which if you do check is upwards of 98%). This is one reason they are so expensive. if my child is going into Law School, I expect him to be prepared in that Law School to pass the Bar. As a parent I want my child to be in the highest percentage possible to succeed. Not 60%, but 90 plus. By the way I don't realy think it's even that high (60%???). I thought New Hanover and Pender County have a very high rate of high school DROP OUTS! You proved my point. Smaller classes and dedicated parents & teachers raise the PERCENTAGE for a child's success. Also, SAT scores are all about percentages - in comparison to the nation's averages, Private Schools continue to score way above Public School's scores.
