Gains in Under-Represented Minority Group Grad Rates

Came across this great study conducted by The Education Trust showing positive movement in the number of minority group graduation rates between 2002-2007. You can check out the complete report here but some highlights a telling graph below.

Ohio State University and Florida State University, have been recognized for model programs that boost retention and graduation rates among underrepresented populations.

Twenty-five percent of “gainers” improved by 10 percentage points or more, and 10 percent increased by 15 points or more. Among the top gainers, the graduation rates for minority students rose upwards of 20 points in five years.
