Education Week's report on Utah graduation rates

Education Week's report on Utah graduation rates

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2,075 |Likes:
Utah is gaining ground fast when it comes to high school graduation, according to a new report. The Beehive State tied with two others to rank 10th in the nation for its graduation rate in 2009, according to Education Week’s annual Diplomas Count report released Thursday. That’s up from 30th in the nation a year earlier — though large gaps still remain between the graduation rates of some ethnic groups.
The report, which calculates rates using a different formula than the one Utah uses, pegged Utah’s overall graduation rate at 78.4, up from 71.9 percent the year before.
