African-American Students Show Most Gains In Graduation Rates, Md. Report Card Finds

A new report indicates students are receiving diplomas at the highest rate in recent history, Maryland education leaders said Wednesday.

Graduation among four-year students from 2010 to last year increased almost a full percentage point from 81.97 to 82.82 percent. The group of students who complete their diploma in five years improved from 84.57 to 85.51.
Graduation rates for African-American, Asian and Caucasian students improved between the same time period, and graduation of African-Americans rose the most of any subgroup -- more than 2 percentage points, from 74.02 percent to 76.09 percent.
