Just two days before we said goodbye to 2011, the CT State Department of Education released new graduation data indicating that 1 in 5 CT students do not graduate high school within four years. Among black and latino students, special education students and english language learners, the four year graduation rate is generally less than 65%.
These new graduation rates use a formula far more accurate than the method previously used and, not surprisingly, graduation rates are lower than previously reported. Check out this article in the CT Mirror for more information and read the CT SDE’s press release here.
