More LIES!

The following is from the Hyde website.  I know of at least THREE years where this is absolutely not true!  How about any of you?  

"Hyde helps students
prepare for college and
adulthood:
98% of Hyde?s boarding
school students attend a fouryear
college."

No doubt this is a fabrication!  Maybe the person who took this survey also took some of the drugs that were confiscated on campus!

What's the deal with the 98% statistic?  It must be some kind of "magical number," as WWASP (falsely) claims a 98% success rate.  My hunch is they'd claim 100% if they thought people would buy it.

It's all marketing, not reality.  Then again, reality doesn't matter to most StrugglingParents, so I guess it's good marketing.

You are right, Disfunction Junction.  Funny how Hyde prides itself on "truth over harmony" and conscience.  I suppose they don't have a conscience when publishing these lies.

But how many graduate from college?

Faith is a cop-out. It is intellectual bankruptcy. If the only way you can accept an assertion is by faith, then you are conceding that it can't be taken on its own merits.

Very good question.  Also, how many of these 98%kids actually are in this "four year college" by the end of the first year?  What a joke!!  No way 98% go to a four year college!  Really Hyde!!  Who do you think you are fooling?  Try being a little more honest guys!!

This is yet another example of Hyde's patent hypocrisy.  The school preaches honesty, integrity, and conscience.  Yet, the school appears to be far less than honest and forthright about the types of students it admits (the percentage with significant mental health issues, substance abuse issues), the frequency with which staff communicate with parents (far less than advertised, in our experience), college admissions, attrition rate, and on and on.
