Post by Youngblood »

I recently read where Metamora and Washington have had big increases in population. Could this be part of the reason? I did a little research today and was shocked. I guess not really shocked but I was shocked.

* Pekin (1780 students ) had a big decline in its student population.1780 students? I REMEMBER BACK IN THE DAY WHEN THEY WERE PUSHING 2800 plus maybe THIS WAS A SHOCK TO ME I always thought Pekin had a strong community good sports and I thought better schools.

* Limestone had surprisingly higher score reports than originally thought

* WHAT are people looking for in their community?
* school academics?
* school sports?
* strong communities?
* safe communities?

I looked at all this information about 15 years ago and Dunlap was at the top or near the top then. But what got my attention was the fact they were doing it while spending less $$ per student than any other school in the area.
