Administrations, school districts working to boost graduation rates
from Archita Datta Majumdar
In 2013, the U.S. Department of Education stated that the nation's high school graduation rate had risen by 2.7 percent, with more students graduating on time and fewer dropping out. These results are based on a specific measurement called Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate and show a positive picture of the nation's education scene after almost 30 years. If the positive trends persist, then America should also have more college graduates per capita and should easily meet President Barack Obama's goal to have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020.
