State school reviews incorrect




Parents can check out a state report to find out the class sizes at their students’ schools, the rate of students taking advanced courses and the amount of money spent per student; and they can compare those numbers with other school districts.

But school officials say not all of the numbers in the report are right — some are without context or just plain wrong.

The state started requiring the Indiana Department of Education to release the annual school performance reports in the late 1990s. Since then, families across the state have been able to use the reports to address concerns they have with local school officials and to decide when buying a home which school district they wanted their children to attend.
