We are reminded at City Council that CMSD students had highest rate of suicidality (thoughts of suicide) in *country* in 2015.

CMSD is closing Whitney Young, a high-performing magnet school, and forcing all its gifted students into JFK high.  Many of these students will be in physical danger at JFK.  Whitney Young was the only thing that made CMSD workable for those kids, and they have made their school one of the district's few bright spots.  But that's over.  Many are scrambling to get into private schools now.

UPDATE:  Whitney Young has been saved, at least for now, after its students went to meetings and campaigned for it to stay open.

Still not good enough, but it is encouraging to see signs of progress. 

Cleveland schools break out of test score stall. Can they catch Columbus?

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Earlier this year, it looked like Cleveland's much-publicized Cleveland Plan for Transforming Schools had stalled.

State test scores had stayed basically flat three years in a row. And district scores on a key national test also showed no real gains, just a district stuck in a narrow score range for a decade.

This year's state report card broke that pattern. Cleveland students improved their test scores and narrowed the gap between them and the state average. Cleveland scores are also close to overtaking Columbus, the state's largest district.

Let's suppose Cleveland increased both its median average income and decrease it's poverty rate by about 40%, and the schools barely budged in performance, what would that say?

I was surprised to see Columbus schools ranked so badly. The narrative is that poverty-ridden Cleveland is behind the 8-ball when it comes to the schools and that it is hard to get families to move to Cleveland given the state of the school system.  Columbus' median household income is $49k and a poverty rate of 21%. Cleveland's median income is $27k and has a poverty rate of 35%.  Yet both school systems perform almost equally poorly?
