Less Than Half??

Education Week released their latest study on graduation rates. They aren’t alarmists, but reading between the lines is pretty freakin scary. Nationally, only around 70% of 9th graders will actually graduate high school. That’s the good news. In Nevada, only 45% of 9th graders will get their high school diploma. So, the majority of 9th graders in the Silver State won’t graduate high school. Again, High School. In…the…United…States…of…America. When I speak on immigration, I often hear that “they won’t assimuate into our culture”. Of course they do, but reading this report makes me hope they won’t.
