Reform by the Numbers.
Hanford, Terry; White, Kathleen
American School Board Journal, v178 n6 p14-16 Jun 1991
Although numbers such as average test scores or dropout rates can capture part of a school system's success or failure, school statistics seldom tell the whole story. School board members should realize that numbers might measure compliance or process, rather than improvement. Also, improvements in numbers might reflect changes in assessment methods or succeed at expense of other objectives. (MLH)
