One week ago, GOT noted the discrepancy between a press release of his school district and the website maintained by the creator and sustainer of the Challenge Index, Jay Mathews. Original post here.

As a result of subsequent confusion regarding the actual rankings (it seems there was an additional website providing the erroneous information), GOT contacted Mr. Mathews to clear the issue up. Mr. Mathews confirmed that his website was correct.

He then contacted the school in question about the press release. That kicked off a flurry of activity, quite hilarious by the way, but in the end, it turned out Mr. Mathews had received incorrect information from the school district.

Those corrections being made, the school’s ranking changed from 26th on the list to being 5th on the list.

While the website will not be updated for a few weeks, GOT will end with a quote from Shakespeare: All’s well that ends well.
