leads by example with some creative arithmetic. Reporter Amy Griffith’s account of Tuesday’s public hearing on the proposed schools rezoning plan includes this:
The proposal on the table would add part of a non-contiguous zone currently attending Julia Green to Glendale, increasing Glendale’s enrollment from 382 to 487 students. The school’s capacity is 395, meaning the proposal would move Glendale to 108 percent of its capacity.
Not even close. (More like 123 percent.)
