High school graduation rates are on the rise! Check out this Atlantic Monthly article on nationwide increases. http://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2014/11/high-school-graduation-rates-at-an-all-time-high/382494/ How is that happening? It’s the combined effect of all the individual efforts of school districts across the country, like these in Barbour County, West Virginia http://www.wboy.com/story/27552009/barbour-county-schools-circuit-judge-team-up-to-fight-truancy , and Tacoma, Washington http://kplu.org/post/once-labeled-dropout-factories-tacoma-high-schools-post-record-high-graduation-rates. New Jersey, Alabama and Utah all recently announced increases in their graduation rates too.
Congratulations to the kids and all who stand behind them!
