Stats On Schools

Posted on December 18, 2013


I just wanted to write down a few stats on schools I just ran across having a Twitter debate.

  • 70% of Americans are unhappy at work due to lack of engagement (source)
  • Only 14% of SVS alumni were dissatisfied with work due to financial situation (source)
  • 63% of public school students go on to college (2008) (source)
  • 75% go on to college in MA (where SVS is located) (source)
  • 63% go on to college in Framingham, MA (town where SVS is located) (source)
  • 82% of SVS students go on to college (source)

SVS = Sudbury Valley School

I don’t think any of them are hugely persuasive stats for a lot of different reasons, but they are interesting.
