North Carolina graduation rate is best ever

RALEIGH

The Department of Public Instruction released the annual ABCs of Public Education report, which shows how students performed on end-of-the year and end-of-course tests taken in grades 3 through 12.

The report shows rising high school graduation rates, but fewer students meeting a key learning standard.

Graduation rates improved in 2011 with almost 8 out of 10 students - or 77.7 percent - completing high school four years after they start.

But the schools meeting academic growth standards fell from 88 percent in 2009-10 to 81 percent last year.
