Graduation in the United States

Graduation in the United States
Nationwide, 73.4 percent of all public school students graduated from high school with a regular diploma in the class of 2009, marking the second
straight year of gains following a period of modest declines.  A gap of 35 percentage points separates the best-performing and worst-performing states.
The national leaders—Iowa, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—each graduate at least 80 percent of their students.
By contrast, the graduation rate falls below 60 percent in the District of Columbia, Nevada, and New Mexico.
