Minnesota high school graduation rates show narrowing achievement gap

 

February 24, 2017

Graduation rates for black students at Minnesota high schools rose 3 percentage points in 2016, a sign of progress in narrowing the achievement gap between white students and students of color, according to data released Thursday by the state Department of Education.

While the black students' gains were most pronounced, the graduation rate for all students also continued along a slow upward trend. Across Minnesota, 82.2 percent of last year's senior class graduated within four years - the highest overall rate recorded by the department.
