Yes, I remember that. I agree these are additional reasons. However, I don't see that they conflict with the point about bright flight. Moody personnel are some of the people most likely to have children, and many of them located in Lanier County, demonstrating that others can do the same. -jsq

Agree. Do you have access or know of any other data as to what is driving this? I do not know the base performance numbers for the Lanier County school system. If you have them handy, would you mind posting them?

Here are a few related tidbits:

"Lanier County High School is the only school in the district to not meet AYP in 2010. The school also failed to make AYP in 2008 and 2009."
Here are many scores from the state for Lanier County schools:

Looks like the same site has similar information on other counties and for previous dates, so you should be able to compare over time.
