On Jan. 21, the GradNation campaign released new state data and, for the first time, state progress reports on 2013-14 high school graduation rates.

Expert speakers and co-authors of the Data Brief – Jennifer DePaoli, senior education advisor, Civic Enterprises, and Robert Balfanz, director of the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University School of Education – shared what’s behind the new numbers.

The webinar was moderated by Tanya Tucker, vice president of alliance engagement, America's Promise Alliance.

Topics included:

State leaders and laggards
New data on graduation gaps
Update on the number of dropout factories around the country
Status of key subgroups, particularly low-income students, students with disabilities, students of color and English-Language Learners

  12. 12. Building a Grad Nation Data Brief Looking Ahead  The nation is off-track, but with renewed efforts, a 90 percent graduation rate by 2020 is still possible.  To truly meet the GradNation goal, we must reach 90 percent for all students.  The full 2016 Building a Grad Nation Annual Update will further examine state, district, and student subgroup trends, areas of greatest challenge, and what needs to be done to ensure a meaningful high school diploma. #GradNation
