    It should be noted that the #2 school on the list – Conard – is in West Hartford. As usual, Conard ranks higher than Hall, our crosstown rival! David McCluskey, Conard Class of 1978

    What kind of snarky comment is that by Rick Green? Who is he? What is his role with the Courant?

    I wonder what Rick meant by the snarky comment.

    Seeing that the rankings are heavily weighted to student performance, and seeing that Rick is a hard left liberal, I doubt he believes that rich white kids are smarter than everyone else. I doubt he believes lower income people care less about their children’s education.

    Maybe he means that schools from lower income areas pay their teachers less, and therefore, the teachers don’t try as hard.

    The funniest thing about this report is that the best high school in CT is ranked #217, and there are only 50 States.

    When you read the average provincial CT poster on these pages, who rant about how much smarter CT educated people are than the dumb people from other regions of this Country, you have to wonder if they have ever traveled south of NJ.

      Even funnier:

      There are 29 schools in, gasp, TEXAS, ranked higher than CT’s finest school.

      The horror. But I thought Texans were just a bunch of inbred rednecks who’s education is limited to Klan Rallies and Sunday Mass.

      What could explain this besides blatant intentional media misrepresentation and a sheep-like public devouring information they want to hear.

    Those damn rich people who dare be successful and motivate their children to do the same! You’re tight Rick, we should punish them. Maybe from now on we can sneer at them when we mention their towns. LOL, forgot we already do that.

  5. Another Try

    Liberal snark = biting commentary. Conservative snark = censorship. Get with the Courant program.

    Mr. Green–would you say the same thing if the list was about failing schools and listed such educational centers of excellence as Hartford, Waterbury, Bridgeport, New Britain? Or any other schools who graduate less than 50% of their students?
