As usual, a quick statistics entry this month.  In December 2022 there were 1,018 hits from 732 distinct visitors.  This was about the same traffic on both fronts that we saw in November 2022.  However, it was about 500 fewer hits and 300 fewer visitors as December 2021.

The top ten entries during the month were:

  1. Happy Tibb’s Eve!!!
  2. Ban the Cellphone Ban
  3. Updated Tables: Digest of Education Statistics 2021
  4. Virtual Schooling In The News
  5. What Research Is Actually Used by K-12 Administrators?

  7. From Sphere of Concern to Sphere of Control
  8. Questions About The School Of Tomorrow
  9. Virtual Schooling In The News
  10. Why Aren’t There More Innovative Schools?

Finally, the statistics from my old blog site – which again did not see any traffic this past month.

Blog Entry – 98 Percent of Ohio Charter School Graduates are Less Prepared for Post-Graduate World Than Students in Youngstown City Schools

The third and final entry that that caught my attention from the blog 10th Period that I wanted to share was:

98 Percent of Ohio Charter School Graduates are Less Prepared for Post-Graduate World Than Students in Youngstown City Schools

Dayton is the lowest performing major urban district. Yet 2 out of 3 Ohio charter schools are less prepared than Dayton students.

Ohio’s new report card has revealed something extremely troubling about Ohio’s Charter Schools. On a new measure called “Students in the 4-year Graduation Cohort who Completed a Pathway and are Prepared for College or Career Success”, only 9 percent of Ohio’s potential Charter School graduates met those qualifications. More than 36 percent of Ohio’s public school district students met those qualifications.

This one caught my attention because:

I’d also like to use some space to bring up the Ohio Virtual Academy (OHVA) — the ECOT-sized online school. OHVA was paid to educate 14,530 students last year — more students than ECOT ever was paid to educate.

Yet they are just as bad as ECOT at preparing their students for the post-graduate world. An astonishing 87 of 1,820 potential OHVA grads were considered college or career ready. That 4.8 percent rate is lower than all but one Ohio school district — New Miami Local in Butler County, which only had 1 of 44 potential graduates considered college or career ready.

Maybe it’s time to take a look under OHVA’s hood. They did receive $104 million last year to produce these anemic results, after all.

What was it I was just saying about being good stewards of the public purse and the promise of a quality public education?
