Both of two controverting "facts" cannot be true

The Journal and APS would have you believe that the APS graduation rate grew 20% under Marty Esquivel and Winston Brooks. Phenomenal growth by any standard. Record growth.

When the graduation rate collapsed, link, it wasn't because of class scheduling; it was because the professed numbers were a lot of smoke and mirrors to begin with.  They never reflected sustainable growth.

Now the Journal and APS would like us to believe that the only reason the growth was limited to 20%, is because the schedule that supported the 20% improvement, doesn't work.

We are to believe shortening classes and increasing teacher workload is going to produce even more graduates.

Right, and a pint of Häagen-Dazs serves four.

Oh, and letting the entire high school population out on the streets every Thursday afternoon, how could that possibly go wrong?
