Anchorman And The Goat – It's Not About The Lack Money

While the last ranked man graduating from the Naval Academy is known as “The Anchorman”, graduating at the bottom of the Marine Academy earns the distinction of “The Goat” (named aptly after the Naval Academy’s mascot). School district level FY2014 CRCT scores were released by the DOE yesterday and Atlanta Public Schools (APS) average scores are second from the bottom in every grade level.
DeKalb Schools and APS, however, receive top honors when it comes to the millage rate.

Millage Rate
DeKalb 23.98
APS 21.640
Decatur City 20.9
Clayton 20
Gwinnett 19.25
Cobb 18.9
Marietta City 18.682
Fulton 18.502
Decatur County 15.99

DeKalb Schools and APS have the highest millage rate and lowest CRCT scores in the metro Atlanta area. It’s obviously not about the lack of money.  If DeKalb Schools is The Anchorman, APS is surely The Goat.
