High School Graduation Rates Climb In Louisiana

Graduation

Louisiana's high school graduation rate is continuing to improve.

The state's Board of Education released figures yesterday that put the graduation rate last year at 81.4%, up nearly 17% since 2006.

That's about 3% lower than the national rate.

The panel says more than 40,000 students graduated statewide last year, the most to have ever graduated in four years.
