High school graduation rates climb to all-time high under Obama administration

Finally, some good news. 

High school graduation rates, which have long been a source of national concern, rose to 83% in 2014-15, President Obama said yesterday. When the president was first elected, the national average was around 72%.  

“We’ve made real progress,” Obama told students at Benjamin Banneker Academic High School in Washington, D.C.
