What to do with the new DCPS graduation rate news?
Lots of talk among local education analysts and advocates about the EDWeek report on the decline in the DCPS graduation rate. But there is plenty for other analysts and advocates in other issues to talk about, too. For example, a lower graduation rate may result in lower earnings in the short- and long-terms. And what about homelessness and drug use? Lots of questions and no answers. I would be interested in hearing from you about what the EDWeek report means for your issue or how you will use the data in your advocacy.
