The Indiana Department of Education says the high school graduation rate dropped in 2015. The state’s graduation rate was 88.9 percent, down from 89.8 percent in 2014.
Indiana’s non-waiver graduation rate was 82.8 percent last year, compared with 83.4 percent in 2014. The IDOE says over the last nine years, Indiana’s graduate rate has risen more than ten percent, from 78.4 percent to 88.9 percent.
"The 2015 graduation rate is a testament to the commitment of dedicated educators and the excellence of Hoosier students," said Glenda Ritz, Indiana superintendent of public instruction. "I am pleased with the progress that Indiana’s schools have made in recent years to increase the number of high school graduates. However, there is still work to be done to address the diverse needs of students across our state and to close the achievement gaps between student populations.”
