High School Graduation Rates Not Only Vary By State, But By District
The federal government requires school districts across the country to use a uniform calculation to determine graduation rates. But until now, that data had generally been reported on a state-by-state basis. That changed when Sarah Butrymowicz mapped graduation rates for the 2012-2013 school year across the country by district.
Butrymowicz is Data Editor at Hechinger Report, a nonprofit education news outlet.
