The Covington News - - OPINION -

We were pleased to learn that af­ter fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion, of­fi­cials at Newton High School up­dated their records and now know that the school’s co­hort grad­u­a­tion rate is in­deed up, and, in fact, ex­ceeds the state av­er­age.

All of us who pay taxes or have chil­dren at­tend­ing our lo­cal school sys­tem have a right to ex­pect our county’s name­sake high school to lead the way in aca­demic ex­cel­lence.

We also hope that lessons have been learned by school ad­min­is­tra­tors about the im­por­tance of keep­ing ac­cu­rate records, es­pe­cially those that af­fect lo­cal school­child­ren.
