And these differences in outputs are minimally related what the public schools and private schools themselves are doing during the four years students attend.

Fair enough, but my extreme example was still instructive. Because of how closely the state report card correlates with student demographics, I think it's safe to argue that even schools that "fall"...

You're making the assumption that these "failing" schools are not already increasing their students' level of competence. Since you've shifted the goalposts a bit, I think it's important to focus on...

Nah, just...nah. If St. Ignatius and Lincoln-West switched student enrollments over night, Ignatius would get straight Fs on the state report card, too. The state's grading system lacks validity and...

I'm sure you've attended a high school basketball game or two over the years and so you'd know it's all fair game for student sections. "Cheaters" is pretty tame, actually.

Exactly my point. Firestone has strong programs and many of the elementary school gifted/advanced programs feeding it (and other high schools) is strong as well. The issue, of course, is that because...

I'm not "pissed" that Benedictine has struggled against a Catholic school that has been caught cheating (likely only the tip of the iceberg) and gives all Catholic schools a bad name. :shrug:

Maybe Benedictine has engaged in illegal recruiting at some point in the past? I don't know. But Hoban is on probation right now.

Let's not play the academics card here, please. There are at least a half dozen public high schools in Summit County that offer academic programs that are at least as strong as Hoban's.

Not sure I'd go with the same analogy, but I'll play along: Bonds also hit 762 baseballs over the fence.
