The 97 percent

Regarding your report "About 3 percent of teachers in Md. rated ineffective" (Oct. 28), I am curious why you didn't headline the article "41 percent of teachers in Md. rated highly effective" or "97 percent of teachers rated either effective or highly effective."

I'm a retired teacher from another state visiting Baltimore, and those are pretty impressive numbers that put Maryland school teachers in a good light. The chances of Maryland students getting an excellent teacher as they progress from kindergarten to 12th grade seem far greater than their chance of getting an "ineffective" one.
