Audit Reveals Inaccuracies and Lack of Oversight in California’s Graduation Rates

California’s high school graduation rate rose steadily between 2011 and 2016, but a new reportfrom the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General says those numbers aren’t reliable.

The California Department of Education lacks sufficient controls to ensure graduation rates are accurate and complete, according to the report.

It also said the state does not calculate graduation rates in accordance with federal requirements.
