Cardichon, Jessica; Lovell, Phillip – Alliance for Excellent Education, 2015
The U.S. national high school graduation rate recently reached a record high with 81 percent of the Class of 2013 graduating within four years.

Based on an extensive analysis of state waiver plans, this report shows that recent progress in holding schools accountable for how many students they graduate from high school--the ultimate goal of K-12 education--may be slowed in some states based on waivers recently granted under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), currently…
