    Here's a HINT: there's a story concerning Hood housing buried in this article.

    Are on-post schools scoring worst than off-post schools? Is on-post housing substandard compared to off post? Who knows since KDH refuses ask let alone answer the question.

    But a 11% reduction in student population points over the last five years points to a trend that has military parents choosing off-post housing and school options.

    Regardless of the validity of the parents' reasons for doing this, the trend suggest parents are opting away from post. You would seem to think someone would at III Corps or KISD would be interested in that and that KDH might actually try to report on the trend.

    Who is editing these articles at the KDH? Bueller? Bueller ? Anyone?

    Is this story about decrease in overall KISD numbers (which is statistically immaterial) or decrease in on-post student population (which appears substantial)?
    Headline implies it's about KISD. However the first FIVE paragraphs along with the last SEVEN all talk about on-post housing student population .

    One has to read all the way down to the SIXTH paragraph to find the paragraph that matches the headline.
    I've heard of burying the lead but SIX paragraphs into the story. What journalism school teaches that? Where is the Editor?
    Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
