TOPIC: Graduation rates
OUR VIEW: Don't forget the kids left behind
We are a society that gets hung up a lot on numbers.
A .300 hitter in baseball, a 25 score on an ACT. A 20-point scorer in basketball, a 90-plus school graduation rate.
The higher the number, usually the better.
Recent news of graduation rates among Hardin County and area schools is encouraging news and numbers that bring pride to students, parents, educators and the community as a whole.
