Dear Friend —
Throughout the last eight years, a lot of good work has been done in schools and communities across the country.
High school graduation rates are at an all-time high (83 percent!), and the dropout rate has decreased—with all groups making progress, and students of color closing gaps. But the work is far from over.
Together, we will continue to advocate for our nation’s most vulnerable students and ensure that all students get an opportunity to be successful.
From your friends at the U.S. Department of Education
