Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century.

District Report Cards Detail Advances and Struggles
Parents, teachers and students are learning how well their districts performed last school year.
The state released annual district report cards today. The rating assigned to each district is based on state indicators, a performance index, a federal annual yearly progress rating, and a component called “value-added” that looks at whether students learned less than, more than or just a year’s worth of material in a school year.
Cincinnati was the only large urban district rated “effective.” Columbus and most of the other urban districts were rated in “continuous improvement.”
