Department Of Education: Kentucky Graduation Rate Increases

More Kentucky high school students are getting their diplomas according to new numbers released Wednesday.

The State Department of Education says Kentucky’s graduation rate increased nearly 0.5% from 2006 to 2007.

It's now at 83.72%.

And the dropout rate decreased slightly over that same span.

It's now at 3.17%, a drop of nearly 0.2%.

The state reports graduation data as part of the federal "No Child Left Behind" act.

    Good..a positive story about education. Thanks to teachers and principals going out every day and doing their best for the kids...and trying to give them some incentive to come to school...Also, some good parents who insist that their children go to school. Come on, parents, teachers and administrators, work with our kids and have the best educated people in America...we have kids with the IQ to accomplish that goal

    Enjoy it now because it won't last long with Frankfort putting more money into mud holes for ATV's rather than education.
