    10%? Where do you get that number from? You could derive that number from anything really. Is this only accounting for students who went to high school in the actual city of Philadelphia for 9-12th grades and ignoring all the transfers out and transfers in? If a student goes for just 12th grade do they count for, against, or neither? What if a student goes for 9-11th grade but then transfers out, how do you account for that? Honestly we could go on and on.

    Me for example I was a product of Philadelphia schools from K-6, then my mother moved to south jersey. I’m a college graduate. In fact I’m in grad school. Does my schooling from K-6 have anything to do with my relative college success? Sure. But is that accounted for in this mystery 10%? Nope.
