Letter: Cash is right to set goal of 100 percent graduation

Cash is right to set goal of 100 percent graduation

A previous letter writer indicated his concern that Superintendent Kriner Cash has stated his goal is a high school graduation rate of 100 percent, believing this goal to be unrealistic. I am comfortable with this goal since goals are what an organization strives to obtain.

Would the writer be more comfortable if Cash’s goal was a high school graduation rate of 90 percent? What if this goal was stated as to not graduate 10 percent of high school students?

I suspect most people would prefer going to a hospital whose goal is to cure 100 percent of patients as opposed to a goal of curing 90 percent of patients.
