Our local Northeast Ohio newspapers frequently publish “honor rolls” from local schools. After close inspection, I found out that the average list has 51% of the student population of that school listed.

I remember when I was in high school in the 60s, there were maybe 30 or 40 students total on any honor roll list (and they deserved it), and that was for a school of almost 3,500 students.

So how is it possible that 51% of any school’s roster is on the honor roll? If anyone doubts my word, count (if you have the time) the amount of students listed, and the find out how many students are in that school. See if I’m wrong.

Our rural Virginia papers also publish the “honor roll” lists from the local schools, no way do the numbers total 51% of the student population. There are 2 type lists - A/B Honor Roll (all subjects above 86) and Principal’s list which is Straight A (above 94) in everything including electives.
