U.S. Sets High School Graduation Rate Record

“The United States has set a new record for high school graduation rates, reaching 83.2 percent (up a percentage point from last year). According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the number has steadily increased from 79 percent in the 2010-11 academic year, with the District of Columbia improving the most (by seven percentage points). Furthermore, the data reveals growth for all reported groups of students, including graduation rates for white students (87.6 percent), black students (74.6 percent), Asian students (90.2 percent) and other subgroups.

A White House fact sheet points to several key investments in education made throughout the Obama Administration that may have attributed to higher high school graduation rates.”
