Grad Rate Data
America’s Promise Alliance launched the GradNation campaign in 2010, building on 105 Dropout Prevention Summits that were convened across the country to raise awareness and inspire action. The GradNation goal is two pronged: to achieve a 90 percent graduation rate nationwide by 2020, with no high school graduating less than 80 percent of its students; and regaining America’s standing as first in the world in college completion.
Navigating the confusing world of graduation rates, both locally and nationally, can be daunting. But many tools, research and resources exist to help those in communities across the country understand graduation rates. Look to this channel for the latest on the topic of graduation and dropout data, both on a national and local level.
Alliance for Excellent Education, Civic Enterprises, and the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University have teamed with America’s Promise Alliance to produce the annual Building a Grad Nation report and host the Building a Grad Nation Summit.
