Graduation Rates
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Jennifer Granholm has formed a
bipartisan work group to try and come up with ideas to improve
Michigan's high school graduation rates.
The work group includes state lawmakers and representatives of
several education groups.
Granholm says the state needs to double the number of college
graduates in Michigan. A key will be keeping more students from
dropping out of high school.
Estimates of Michigan's 2005 overall high school graduation rate
vary from 73 percent to nearly 88 percent.
Granholm expects to have proposals related to high school
graduation rates when she gives her State of the State address in
late January.
