A Letter From a Reader

  Thirty years ago (more?) there was a front-page article in the Norman Transcript about the incoming freshman class at OU; the point was that OU was quite pleased that the ACT scores were up around a half point to 23.5, an indication of improved recruiting, secondary school preparation, etc.

Late in the article they mentioned that the average for the school of education, still a flagship for women in those days, was 18.

The dumbest of the schools was education, and the Transcript missed that meaning of the data (and of course the 23.5 included that group).

I never saw those stats again in the Transcript.
