Counting on Graduation


"Among industrialized nations, the United States is the only country in which today's young people are less likely than their parents to have earned a high school diploma. Reversing this trend could hardly be more urgent. Yet policymakers in many states are setting graduation improvement targets that won't get our young people--or our nation--ready to compete in the knowledge-driven world of the 21st century.
