    Policy Matters Ohio published a study that showed an exact stair-step correlation between median family incomes and the ranking attained by a school district. The media family incomes in schools rated "Excellent With Distinction" were three times those of the schools rated "Academic Emergency."

    A blog here just published a list of Ohio's bottom 10 percent schools since our governor's new budget proposes to punish all the teachers by having them retake their certification tests. Of course, they are ALL in poor districts. They even include schools in juvenile correction facilities and schools for kids with behavioral and emotional problems. Seriously — you're going to blame the TEACHERS?
