I was reading down this list and was very surprised to find "children's grade point average" on the list! I think there are a lot of good reasons to NOT include this as part of our list -- GPA reflects much, much more than "good community," GPA may not be used in many schools, success at school is much more than GPA. I also think it reflects something about our organization (and I'm not sure I like what it reflects) that we would choose this particular piece of data. I object to this on essentially the same grounds as I object to standardized group test scores as a measure of a school/classroom's "worthiness." I encourage TCN to reconsider this particular item. If you want to hear more of my reasoning, I will elaborate. But I really wonder if this item was well-considered to begin with.
