A new report from the University of Wisconsin System suggests Wisconsin’s high school graduates are getting a bit of help in the classroom.
The UW System report, “The UWs Graduation Report: The Key Facts About College Enrollment and Enrollment Growth” finds that Wisconsin’s graduation rate is actually slightly higher than the national average, at 71.8 percent, which is the second highest in the nation.
However, Wisconsin’s students are still lagging behind the nation’s average.
The report also suggests that Wisconsin students’ high school completion rate is slightly higher in certain regions of the state.
The UWs report states that students from the state of Wisconsin are significantly more likely to complete high school than students from any other region of the country.
The results show that students in the state have higher graduation rates than those in other states, as well.
For example, the graduation rate for students in New York City is 78.2 percent, while the graduation rates for students from Alabama are 68.3 percent.
However, the report also points out that the Wisconsin students graduation rate may not be that high because of the students low dropout rates.
According to the report, students who complete high-school in the Wisconsin state average of 2.7 percent, compared to 1.7 for students who leave high school in other parts of the nation at 2.4 percent.
