Mississippi’s Graduation Rate Up

The State Department of Education says the graduation rate has increased significantly from 2011 to 2015 while dropout rates have decreased.

In a news release Tuesday, the department said school districts showed a four-year graduation rate of 78.4 percent for the 2014-2015 school year. That marks a four-percent increase from a rate of 74.5 percent in the 2013-2014 school year.

The department says the increase brings Mississippi closer to the national average of 82 percent.
