Independent Record Corrects Major Error in Education Story


The Independent Record corrected a major error in yesterday’s story about administration in the school district, reporting that the Helena School District has more administrators per teacher than other Montana school districts:

A story in the Sunday Independent Record regarding school district budget cuts contained a mathematical error.

The story should have said that the Helena School District has the largest percentage of administrators of major cities in Montana.

Of course, an even better correction would also note the error on the original story.

No thanks needed. 🙂
