Pat Skorkowsky: finally, a reformer?

Kudos to Superintendent Skorkowsky, who appears to be crushing many of the well-known closet skeletons to dust. Certainly, transparency would be a welcome addition to the public discussion that we’ve never really had about how we provide the benefit of a government-funded education in Clark County.

Today comes word that CCSD has been lying, for years, about our dismal graduation rate. Turns out they were counting kids who transferred across town as dropouts. I spent quite a bit of time analyzing and debunking CCSD statistics during my state legislative time, and today’s news is surprising not because the data it was based on was corrupt but because it has been corrected, and publicly acknowledged. Sunshine and transparency work.

Now, everybody back to working to improve the outcomes of our public education system.
