From the NY Post:
Mayoral candidate Bill Thompson Jr. today said the Bloomberg administration inflated graduation rates by letting students graduate without finishing all their requirements.
But Mayor Bloomberg's campaign said graduation rates rose just 2.7 percentage points when Thompson was on the Board of Education in the late 1990s.
The mayor says the graduation rate has risen 9.9 points since 2005, the year the state began calculating it the way it currently does.
Well then you can't really make the comparison, can you Bloomturd? How do you explain graduation rates rising when there are so many more bad teachers?
And would you want to send your kids to schools overseen by the man in the photo? Does that make for a smart choice of photo to display on a campaign website?
