Will Only One in Two Los Angeles Seniors Graduate This Year?

Education World:

According to The 74 and its partner, LA School Report, Los Angeles Unified School District is scrambling to offer extra assistance to about 15,000 high school seniors that are currently not on track to graduate. The 74 says that as it stands, only one in two LAUSD high school seniors are on track to graduate. “According to internal district reports obtained by LA School Report, an estimated 54 percent of seniors are on track to meet their ‘A through G’ requirements. The actual graduation rate could be even lower as there are several other requirements to graduate,” the article said.
