High School Graduation Rates Not Only Vary By State, But By District

The federal government requires school districts across the country to use a uniform calculation to determine graduation rates. But until now, that data had generally been reported on a state-by-state basis. That changed when Sarah Butrymowicz mapped graduation rates for the 2012-2013 school year across the country by district.

Butrymowicz is Data Editor at Hechinger Report, a nonprofit education news outlet.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
