dc.descriptionThe 2019 annual update to the nation includes three new features: a Secondary School Improvement Index; a focus on homeless students with graduation rate data available for the first time from 26 states, together with a national graduation rate released by the National Center for Homeless Education; and a new component highlights indicators of postsecondary success and provides snapshots of innovations in the school-to-work pipeline as the nation works to prepare more Americans for the increasing demands of the workplace. This year’s report also continues to keep the nation’s attention on the progress and challenge across the nation and by state in raising high school graduation rates, a critical on-track indicator for young people as they enter adulthood. The graduation rate has continued its rise from 79 percent in 2011 to an all-time high of 84.6 percent in 2017 under the Four-Year Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate (ACGR), and from 71 percent since 2001 based on the best available estimate that has tracked the ACGR very closely. This progress means that more than 3.5 million additional students have graduated instead of dropping out over the last decade and a half.en_US
