A report containing erroneous data now has been set right and portrays that Hawaii student suspensions at the US weren’t the worst, said officials.
The Hawaii Education Department had erroneously combined the suspended days for each offence instead of each student, before sending out the data to the fed government, reported Star Advertiser.
The report containing the erroneous data was set right and then shared on Thursday. It showed that there existed 24 suspension days for each 100 students rather than the earlier mistakenly calculated 41 days, said the officials.
Mistakes were found when the education department composed data records from 2015-16 academic year, said the officials. The fed government makes a request for information submission in every 2 years. However, this is the first ever time that it requested for the no. of suspended days for every 100 students.
The issue with the earlier report was that it counting the days twice mistakenly and in a few cases even thrice, said Christina Kishimoto, Schools Superintendent.
But following the correction, Hawaii was found to be under average and isn’t the worst student suspensions in the US, said Kishimoto. In fact, the good part is that the new report results are far better than compared to the previous notice, Kishimoto added.
