APS graduation rates "dip" 6.2%

In the Journal this morning, link, we find that APS graduation rates. which until this morning had been soaring, have actually "dipped" 6.2% instead.  One wonders at the timing of the release; after the school board election.

The Journal used the word "dip" for a reason.

The word "dip" was used to leave an impression and or
create a belief that is untrue or misleading.  To wit;

the magnitude of the decline is "inconsequential",
no "big deal".
The "collapse" in APS graduation rates represents fully
one third of the nearly 20% growth APS claimed by the board under Winston Brooks.

Someone at the Journal
would have you believe
that that's no big deal.

Let's start with Journal
Editor in Chief Kent Walz.
