from The Associated Press
Despite rising national graduation rates, low-income and minority students continue to lag behind their peers in finishing high school, according to a study. While the national graduation rate for the year 2015 was 83.2 percent, it was only 77.8 percent for Hispanic students and 74.6 for black students, said the report by Civic Enterprises and the Everyone Graduates Center at the Johns Hopkins University. The report represented an analysis of federal data released in December and policy recommendations.
