Graduation Challenge

Data analysis based on our Promoting Power data set

Too many of the nation’s high school students leave high school ill-prepared for work or college; and far too many leave altogether, long before graduation day. Recent reports tell us that no more than 75% of students leave high school with a diploma. In nearly 2,000 of the nation’s high schools, graduation is not the norm.

This Website aims to be part of the solution: a resource for everyone interested in transforming our nation’s schools so that all students graduate prepared to succeed in college, career and civic life.

Its goal is to provide the best data available on the size, scope, location, and characteristics of the Graduation Gap (the difference between existing graduation rates and skill levels in the nation’s high schools and those needed to meet the economic and social challenges of the 21st Century).
