Beginning with the class of 2011, federal regulations required each state to calculate graduation rates using a method known as the Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate (ACGR). All states and the District of Columbia have reported ACGR rates.
Based on those state-reported data, the U.S. Department of Education indicates that the nation’s graduation rate reached an all-time high, 82 percent for the class of 2014. That’s an increase of 1 percentage point over the prior year. But black, Latino, and American Indian students continue to lag behind their white and Asian peers.
