    The sign seems fairly adequate, not too exciting, but gets the message across.

    Thumbs sideways?

    It`s No Child Left Behind terminology. If the schools don`t make adequate yearly progress they go on probation. They probably weren`t making it before.

    The goals are adequate, the school is adequate, the graduates are adequate McDonald`s employees. No, I don`t want fries with that.

    Adequate is adequate. That`s what it means. There`s no point pretending that everyone and everything can be superb. Adequate progress is exactly what should be aimed for because if it`s defined correctly then it`s an achievable and sustainable improvement.

    Besides, we don`t know what the goals are, what degree of progress is deemed adequate and what situation the school was in before. We don`t even know if this is a real school.

    As I`ve grown up, my ambitions and expectations of myself have gone from a gleaming pillar of society to just wanting to pass my classes and get my damn degree already so I can get a job, buy a gun and shoot myself in the head.

    It`s life. At least Constitution isn`t all jaded about it yet. Way to go guys.

    Adequate Yearly Progress is a term used by the state of Michigan for schools that are doing well.

    It is a term that is filled with government language, but is actually quite impressive.

    Adequate yearly progress in 2007, the retention rate was acceptable, standardized testing was about par for the course, the sports teams did ok, the marching band did a reasonably good job at the parade...

    I learned geography in Michigan and I can draw a world map from memory and label almost every country (excluding a few island nations). Thanks for discriminating.

    Still better than a whole lot of the schools in Arizona - most of them have a long way to go to reach "adequate" in anything.

    Don`t hate, Fatninja`s one liner in every link is basically the greatest constant in my life. As useless as some of them are (no offense) I feel like if they stopped I might have to shave my head, take a vow of silence, and rethink the meaning of human existence....

    I think I could totally live without Fatninja`s comments. They`re not even thoughtful. Their focus is to up his post count and not anything else. Drives me nuts. D<

    I like this. They`re not over selling themselves and they seem realistic with their expectations. Better to go for a little progress every year then a whole bunch at once and mess things up!

    postcount on a site trying to alleviate boredom isn`t exactly something to brag about.

    Probability(user needs something to do with his/her life) = postcount/(days since becoming a member) * (1 + age of poster/100).

    From his profile, he`s been a member for about 759 days and is 18-29 years old (let`s take the average of that being 23 years)

    so P = 9067/759 * 1.23 = 1469% chance that Faninja01 needs a life.

    Thank you for giving me a mission, here, on IAB: to keep Fatninja silent.

    Although that goal will most likely be forgotten and/or ignored in five minutes.
