"IN THE NEWS"
National high school graduation rates have reached a historic high and the graduation gap between White students and Black, Hispanic, and American Indians has narrowed over time. According to Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, "The hard work of America's educators, families, communities, and students is paying off. This is a vital step toward readiness for college and careers for every student in this country" (Huffington Post 16 Mar 2015)
"To provide all Louisiana’s children the opportunity to be successful in the global marketplace, Louisiana’s education system must embrace change. Nearly all of today’s jobs require higher level skills, creating a large skills gap. Closing this gap will require a commitment to a new approach to educating Louisiana students.
The four year cohort graduation rate in Louisiana – the percent of children entering the 9th grade that graduate four years later – hovers about 67% with “one-third” of students not graduating with their class. Of the 67% of students who graduate on time, approximately half of these students enter post secondary education. Of those that enter college, about one in three finish post-secondary education with a degree.
This growing skills gap will ultimately lead to an “opportunity crisis” for the next generation of high school students and will cripple the future economy of Louisiana." (Ednexthorizon.org)
