HISD's Rankings Improve, As Promised Yesterday
Last year 57 percent of the district's schools were included in those two categories; this year it's 73 percent.
Exemplary 84 schools 31 percent
Recognized 116 schools 42 percent
Acceptable 49 schools 18 percent
Unacceptable 12 schools 4 percent
Here, badly formatted by the district, is the list of exemplary schools.
There's always a lot of criticism about how these rankings are achieved, and how districts and the Texas Education Agency do with statistics what bureaucrats always do with statistics -- massage them to look good.
But let's let HISD bask in their moment, for the moment. The TEA releases statewide stats at 1 p.m. today on their website.
