High School Graduation Rates in US at Record High

More kids are graduating High School in 4 years than ever before.

Nation’s high school graduation rate reaches new record high

The nation’s high school graduation rose again in the 2014-2015 school year, reaching a new record high as more than 83 percent of students earned a diploma on time, according to federal data released Monday.

The figures show gains among every group of students — including white, black, Asian, Hispanic and Native American, as well as low-income students, students with disabilities and those learning English as a second language. The broad improvement continues a trend that began with the 2010-2011 school year, when states first adopted a uniform method of reporting graduation rates.

Gaps between student groups continued to close but remained large: Nearly 88 percent of white students graduated on time, 10 percentage points higher than Hispanic students (78 percent), 13 percentage points higher than black students (75 percent), and 16 percentage points above Native American and Native Alaskan students (72 percent).

Guinness – World’s Biggest Afro

This is Aevin Dugas (36), a Social Worker from New Orleans, who has won a place in the Guinness Book of Records for the “World’s Biggest afro”.

OK — Old Skoolers – Remember how much of a pain it was to keep your Afro clean and neat back in the 60’s and 70’s?

Dang … We need some Trammps and some platform shoes with that!
