а Кентаки мы покидать не можем
у нас тут школы хорошие;-p
С двумя чуваками в клубе спорил, почему в Джерси налоги такие невъе.
Они (зомбированные) в один голос - "а зато у нас школы лучшие".
А какой у вас критерий ?
SAT и поступаемость ?
Ну, я думаю, что мужик не заметит, что я его опубликую.
А если заметит, то не обидится.
saw this and recalled your argument:
" ... explain again how brilliant NJ students and teachers are and how NJ.s high taxes are worth it for the educational premium, when NJ student performance on SAT tests are thoroughly mediocre, and lagging those of many other states with lower taxes, lower paid high school teachers.
"As expected I found a ranking which put NJ's education performance as #2 in the country (https://smartasset.com/student-loans/states-best-schools). What's more, you can see that the 5 highest rated schools are in the northeast (except for Virginia).
This rating is based on more than just SAT scores: The survey looked at data from the College Board, the ACT, the National Center for Education Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau and the National Education Association. It considered these ten metrics:
High school dropout rate (double weight).
Percent of high school graduates who attend college within 12 months of graduation (triple weight).
Funding per student (full weight).
Student-teacher ratio (double weight).
Percent of high school juniors taking either the ACT or the SAT (double weight).1
Percent of high school juniors taking a second admissions test (half weight).
Average SAT scores (quarter weight).2
Average ACT scores (quarter weight).
Number of students taking at least one Advanced Placement exam as a percentage of high school seniors (full weight)
Average A.P. test score (quarter weight)
For each of those ten metrics, SmartAsset ranked all fifty states and applied a score from 0-100 based on that ranking. A school ranked first would receive a 100, while a state ranked last would receive a zero. After applying the weights listed above, we calculated an average score for each state. Grades were assigned on a curve, based on the percentile of each school...s raw score.
As you can see this is a more comprehensive rating system that takes into account more casinos then the simplistic rating system you quoted to prove your point. Because, obviously, rating a school system has to account for more than just raw text scores. Other rating systems I saw also took into account financial data of the kids (for example, how many kids were getting a free lunch) and how many spoke English at home.
Tell me what you think? In your rating system Arizona appears to get a high rating (#2) Under the more comprehensive rating system I found, it's 49 of out of 50."
