It's a start, I suppose.

Alabama seniors beat national average on SAT exam

However, it is still quite a shock to learn that fully 50% of students score below average.

Sorry, that's an old joke and should have no place in such a vibrant and non-boring place as this. Please, disregard it.

A full 50%? Goodness, think about the chillun. We need to set up a commission to study the problem. The next thing you are going to tell me is a full 50% score above average or to be technically correct, above the median score which I assume given the law of large numbers is pretty darn close to the average.

Now, let's not be mean about it.
