Oh, and Hudson had an astonishingly successful pass rate?
Isn't Hudson pretty much all rich folks, well to do and all? Far better income than Akron in general?
My oh my! Right in your face is demonstrated a definite correlation: more wealth = better education!
The Meritocracy in action!
Not hard to figure. More wealth, higher taxes. Schools get more money and added to the State's allocated amount, they can pay teachers moe. Therefore, they will get an educator of a higher level. It's a no brainer and the way it should be. If I want to pay the taxes, I expect overall better services for my money.

Hudson residents also pay a disgustingly high property tax to make sure the schools stay the best. You in Akron can't demand what you're not willing to pay for!
