Report card helpful for parents

By Staff
Our opinion, Hartselle Enquirer
Report card day is a ritual in most households. Each time the day rolls around, children – some anxious, some eager – bring home their reports cards for their parents to examine.
The report cards are examined and parents use them to judge how their student is progressing in school.
The same principal works for the state-issued report card published last week. The report cards examine a multitude of education-related factors, including test scores, funding and discipline. They give parents, teachers, administrators and tax-payers a "one-stop shopping" view of the school system.
The report shows mostly positives for the local school system, with some areas of concern, most notably the drop out rate. We need to look at these areas and work to improve them. We hope parents will examine this system report card as closely as they examine their child's.
