Report notes

A report for high school kids:

1. Get the international list of which country is doing better.
2. Get the ranking of each individual report recipient's school
3. Divide the international list in three groupings
3a. The number of countries and their associated kid population the same age as the report recipient who are one standard deviation up or down from the kid's school. These are the "peer competitors"
3b. The number of countries and their associated kid population that the kid's school blows away (results more than one standard deviation better).
3c. The number of countries and their associated kid population that is blowing the kid's school away.

Report to be run once a year.
Report to be offered for distribution for free to each school district.
When the report is refused, it gets a 'banned in Boston' aura.
