Of every 100 students who enter the 9th grade in the District of Columbia’s regular public schools or charter schools, only nine obtain a postsecondary degree within five years of enrolling in college, says a report.

Released by the District of Columbia State Education Office, the report also says that 43 percent of regular public and charter school students graduate from high school within five years; 29 percent enroll in postsecondary programs.
