>UPDATE: How about a little perspective? Darke County’s best school (Versailles) would be tied for the worst in Mercer County as far as meeting the state indicators: Celina Excellent with Distinction 25, Coldwater Excellent 26, Fort Recovery Excellent 26, Marion Excellent 26, Parkway Excellent 25, St. Henry Excellent 26. Minster and New Bremen – just outside of Mercer County – each also scored a perfect 26.
Since some people objected to the form of the previous graph, here is one utilizing percentages (rather than raw numbers) of state indicators met. Refer to the prior story for more explanation if necessary.
