numbers

Written on October 9, 2010

Numbers I would like to know:

  • percentage of parents who don’t go to parent-teacher conferences, even after the many out-of-hours accommodation teachers offer
  • comparison of standardized test performance between kids who stay in one school/at one or two addresses during their elementary school years vs kids who have been more mobile
  • percentage of kids who change households more than once a week, due to parents who have split up or other unusual custodial arrangements
  • percentage of elementary-age kids who get to bed before 9PM or who are in bed at least 10 hours a night
  • percentage of elementary or middle-school students who have access to a TV, computer, smartphone or other networked distraction after they are in bed
  • percentage of elementary or middle-school students who have a library card and who have books checked out on it
  • percentage of elementary or middle-school students who have a bicycle and can ride it
  • percentage of elementary or middle-school students who have taken swimming lessons or can already swim
  • percentage of elementary or middle-school students who are on a sports team or have a physical activity they regularly pursue (cycling, skating, skiing, ultimate frisbee, hiking)
  • percentage of elementary students whose parents bring them to school and are regularly late
