This guy speaking in this article is obviously not a math person. Four hundred less will not do the trick.
When you bargain, you always have to start asking for the impossible and hope you can negotiate down to something agreeable to both parties. I know you have to start somewhere, but a bigger number would have been better.
Wow, if he got rid of 400 students, he'd be 95% overcrowded (i.e., have twice as many students as the school was designed for) instead of 114% overcrowded!
I was just reading the news. Apparently a parking garage partially collapsed in downtown Atlanta. Hopefully, since it is after lunch, there were only cars in the garage. We'll see.
Good news - it appears no people were in that part of the garage (they are still looking) and the only damage was crunched cars. While it will make it difficult for people to get home - cars can be replaced.
Glad no one got hurt=--sounds awful
Actually I think 400 would change it from 250% to about 225%. Better, but far from perfect.
Is my math wrong? I divided 4500 by 2100 and got 2.14. Since 100% is 2100, I said they were 114% overcrowded.
If I am wrong, please tell me how.
(37 cars, still no people)
That is why I hate data. You can play around with statistics and use the same numbers different ways to get different results.
I am sure the guy is kicking himself for not saying a higher number. But saying something unreasonable would have probably made him look like a dope.
ES, anyone who reads this blog knows how much I love principals and I couldn't resist kicking him myself.
