US News High School Rankings

We have been following the recent developments of Willoughby Eastlake School Board and Administration. Their definite left turn in education by promoting Critical Race Theory has the citizens in the district really concerned.

Lets review the statistics on just how well they are teaching the three “R’s”. US News has ranked the high schools across the nation. The statistics for the Willoughby Eastlake School District are appalling. With an overall score of 52.48 for North and 72.23 for South High School, we have to give them a solid “F” for “failure to educate”.

During the last school board meeting, three students spoke about the school dropping AP Spanish. It appears that the school, like many public schools, are now more concerned with social justice issues than teaching the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic. Unfortunately, many first year Lake County students at Lakeland Community College have to take remedial courses to try to succeed at the college level.

To the taxpayers in the Willoughby-Eastlake School District:

We will let you decide if the results are acceptable for the money being spent.

There is something drastically wrong with the curriculum, or teaching methods. We believe that the math and reading proficiencies are unacceptable.
