New EdWeek Report Sees High School Graduation Rate Rising

By Catherine Gewertz — June 08, 2011 1 min read

Education Week put out its annual “Diplomas Count” report yesterday, and there is lots of interesting stuff in there if you follow graduation-rate trends or the debate about pathways from high school into college.

This year’s report finds graduation rates on the rise again after a couple years of flatlining and also explores the “university for all” presumption that has tinged some of the education rhetoric. We’ve got a collection of stories exploring post-high-school pathways other than a four-year degree.

The index to the special issue is here, and you can watch our presentation and panel discussions about it here.
