To the Editor:
In today’s reality of a never ending stream of available information and content, we are inundated with all types of polls and rankings. Whether it’s the best diet plan for your age group, the best car to suite your lifestyle and budget, or even the best smartphone for those who are left-handed, there seems to be a poll and subsequent ranking for just about anything and everything. Take our schools for instance. In a variety of recent polls Trumbull Public Schools (TPS) are ranked as performing very well in some, while others show our schools not performing as well in comparison to other schools in the respective polls. While these rankings provide a snapshot by which to compare and evaluate a moment in time, they should not be the sole item by which we frame the entire picture of the topic being surveyed — in this case our schools.
