“A Whole Bunch” of high school students can’t do percentages

About half of these gang symbols have numbers in them.

SOME TOWN – At this high school not too far away, there’s a big chunk of the students who find themselves unable to calculate basic percentages.

Estimates range from “a good many” to “a heap” and “probably most of them,” said third-year freshman Lonnie Miles. “It’s hard to say without solid numbers.”

The local school board published the numbers in the newspaper. Miles points out, though, that they are “encoded in all these hydroglyphics,” referring to the % symbol that pervades the statistics.
