Jeb Bush said Florida graduation rates went up in his education 'miracle,' but we learn....

For years we have heard about the Florida miracle, supposedly the result of Jeb Bush’s tough accountability measures.

But whoa!

The latest federal data show that Mississippi has a higher graduation rate than Florida.

Is there a Mississippi miracle?

“Federal officials say varying methods of graduation rates that states used previously were unreliable for state-by-state comparisons.”


As are all those bogus numbers from the deformers' 'miracles,' including the ones that tell you 'all the students in charter school X got into college'.

They don't tell you how they got in (sometimes strings were pulled or prearrangements made); they don't tell you how many students disappeared before graduation; they don't tell you which colleges or how long they stayed.

But they got in! It's a miracle!
