Texas Posts Top High School Graduation Rates, Again

Texas education officials once again announced top high school graduation rates on Tuesday, reporting that 88 percent of public school students in the class of 2013 received a diploma within four years.

It is the third year in a row that the state has posted record-breaking high school graduation rates, which have climbed steadily over the past six years. The state has also made gains nationally — in April, the U.S. Department of Education released a report that showed Texas tied for second place, with only Iowa reporting a higher rate for the class of 2012.
