School Incentives

It is all about incentives:
"A study released Feb. 25 by Michigan State University researchers found a 31.9% graduation rate for Detroit Public Schools students--just 25% for boys, and 39% for girls.

The Michigan Department of Education reported a 66.8% graduation rate for Detroit Public Schools for the Class of 2006."
Of course the administrators' pay depends upon the (fictitious) graduation rate data. The same thing happens here in Houston.
