The New York Daily News found another of those “miracle” schools that, on examination, isn’t.

Gary Rubinstein is a master debunker of miracle schools, and his antennae went up when he read about a charter school in the South Bronx where almost every student graduates. The Daily News wrote: “Of the 66 12th graders at Hyde Leadership Charter School, 62 graduated — a 95% rate that crushes the citywide average of 64.7%.”

Time for mathematics. Gary knew that the citywide rate was the “cohort rate,” the percentage who made it through high school to graduation. The 95% rate represents those who made it to 12th grade and graduated.

When the data were made comparable, the graduation rate at the “miracle school” was lower than the citywide average.

As Gary concludes, the Daily News could really use a fact-checker.
