HOW TO PLAY WITH STATISTICS 101

I know I’ve already highlighted the below chart, but the first question I asked of the Census when this was sent to me was “Why are you including 15 year olds in the graduation rates you are reporting?”, I know of very few 15 year olds getting their diplomas, in fact with the high rate at which Black Boys are repeating HS grades, the median age of graduation has got to be closer to 18 if not 19…”thats just how we report for all ethnicities. opening up another blow hole for special interest organizations to further exploit the “crisis” of young black males further. The 78.9% for the movie is removing the 15-17 year old demographic, and if you look at 20+ demo, it’s even more positive. But you’ll never hear that Black Men are at all time records when it relates to HS graduation.

p.s. here’s a blurb you’ll never hear on the six o’clock news:
