Since the schools in question have not been revealed by others, nor have I obtained permission from the schools to release their names (it may be as easy as asking, I have not attempted to do so), I will not do so here. That said, would it help you to understand this point if you knew that student performance (as measured by our state's API, Academic Performance Indicator) at Railside decreased steadily prior to the year of her data and increased substantially thereafter? Along with the fact that the school had left a more traditional approach and returned to one thereafter? And that the key person in charge of her program there left because the more traditional approach was mandated by the district (in part, because horrible API rating) and is now teaching middle school? Probably not. Just observing.
