Lincoln Country....What is Going On?

Today in the mail we got a little paper/flier thing called "District Dialog," I was just glancing through it when I saw a box entitled "Our 2009 Graduates: What Is In Their Future?" and it shared a bunch of statistics, this is what there was...

What is happening to Lincoln County? Where have all the students gone and why are there so little planning on going to any form of school at all? How did Taft get more in scholarships than Newport? This just made me sad reading this.
