    "Seriously? The statewide average for high school graduation is just 74.2%? That's tragic. Wow." larterl

    The national average is 69%, so relatively speaking we should celebrate. The highest nationwide graduation rate since, statistics have been kept, was 1969 when the graduation rate was 77%.

    there's a direct correlation to grad % rate
    and published stats from Dare County and
    CH-C City Schools. however, it's the
    "elephant in the room" that you can't
    talk (post) about.
