Webinar: Diplomas Count 2008

An archive of the June 24 live interactive presentation and discussion of the key findings from this year’s annual Diplomas Count report is now available.


As the nation struggles to close its graduation gap, Diplomas Count 2008 examines states' efforts to forge stronger connections between precollegiate and postsecondary education.

Diplomas Count 2008

This year’s installment of Education Week’s annual report features a comprehensive analysis of public high school graduation rates for the nation, the states, and every school district in the country. For the first time, this influential report breaks down graduation rates for each U.S. congressional district.

Diplomas Count also explores the rapid growth of state-level P-16 councils. By bringing together key representatives from all levels of education, state government, business, and the community, the councils seek to better align educational institutions from preschool through postsecondary. High on the agenda for many of these panels are efforts to create a more seamless schooling continuum that prepares high school students for life, work, and further education.
