Leo Casey: DOE website obscuring important statistics

Over at Edwize, the UFT's blog, Leo Casey describes his trouble trying to find documentation of schools' graduation rates anywhere on the DOE's website. I've grown so accustomed to finding information on the labyrinthine site that I can forget just how impossible it is to figure out for someone who doesn't spend most of her time scouring the internet.

Commenters at Edwize note that the DOE's new website makes data somewhat easier to find, but that schools are unable to update their own information with ease, and that graduation rates, even when available, are notoriously unreliable.
