Reply to "Charter Schools, ACEs, and Trauma"

I used the numbers available from the public study.  I tried to obtain additional data access with other questions and manipulations,  but no luck.

The "45%+" with 4 or more ACEs is for the Zip Codes Comprising "North Philly", where I have taught for 13 years in same neighborhood. The Zip Code map is found on page 17 of the study.  The caution is the statistical reliability of small sample size.  The reliability concern is why I tried to lump North Philly Zip codes into an aggregate (they're all 45%+ incidence of 4+ ACEs).  I used ONLY the existing data I was allowed to access.

My belief ?  My belief is that Childhood Trauma in North Philly is way understated in this study,  related to some design aspects and some decisions about specific questions included/excluded.  My classroom experience in North Philly, of children I was pretty aware of explicitly (home visits and my neighborhood residence, longitudinal experience with family siblings/relatives etc)  is between 2/3 and 3/4 (very conservatively) have 3+ injury categories.
