40% drop in Philly schools on state dangerous list
This coincides with a story I had heard about the Mastery takeover of Gratz being coupled with a new disciplinary program where troublemakers get sent to a seperate floor of the school and follow a much stricter day schedule. Apparently the program worked wonders, but it's all second hand info so I wasn't sure how much credence to place in that story. I had also heard that there was some kind of change made in how "promise academies" or "renaissance schools", or whatever the hell name they're using, are able to discipline students.
Any idea what might cause the overall decline in violent incidents? Or is this state list just BS? I know NE was never even that bad of a High School, relatively speaking.
