3Rs: Riting; Rubbish surveys and Rong percentages
I have posted two articles here. One is a bland bit about Alan Johnson fast-tracking kids to learn their times tables a year earlier. And the next article is about felons being released back into society without any risk assessment. Whether this is true or not is momentarily immaterial, what I liked was the title "4% of felons 'unchecked'" given that the first line of the article reads "Four in ten convicts are released back into society without any assessment of their risk to the public, a report claims."
Correct me if I am wrong but isn't 4 out of 10 40% and not 4%?? Maybe they should do their percentages as well as writing about the three Rs.
But then the sample was only 1..!
