State Releases Non-Academic Data

The high school dropout rate at Kentucky high schools rose for the second straight year.

Kentucky's Department of Education reports that black and Hispanic students saw their dropout rates rise.

Kentucky's Education Commissioner, Gene Wilhoit, said he's concerned even though the increase in dropouts was relatively small.

Graduation rates for Kentucky high school seniors rose last year, even as the dropout rates inched up.

According to Kentucky's Department of Education, over 82 percent of eligible seniors received their diplomas this year, while just over three percent of students stopped going to school.
