In the winter of 1821, the civic leaders of Boston approved what was then a radical idea. At a time when advanced learning was largely restricted to the wealthy, they voted to create the country's first public high school, open to boys 12 or older who could pass an entrance exam. [That shit is worth so much analysis it, I can't even WRAP MY BIG analytical head around it]. Ever since, Americans have been trying to figure out exactly what public high schools should do. Should they concentrate on preparing the best and the brightest for college? Should there be more emphasis on vocational training? Should students with different abilities and goals learn in the same classrooms, or should they be segregated into different tracks or even different schools? The debate has never been more contentious than now,I thought, sh*t, why don't we rank the WORST SCHOOLS.
It would be fly.
We could list the principals names.
The number of police employed by the district.
The number of suspended students.
The number of 12th graders, the number of graduates.
SH*t would be hot.
The Best Deserve recognition and the worst deserve a chance to
What is the worst school in your city and why?
Why are school rankings so emotional?
