A new report released today by the Schott Foundation for Public Education finds that the latest estimates for national public high school graduation rates are 59 percent for Black males, 65 percent for Latino males, and 80 percent for White, non-Latino males. Since the Schott Foundation’s 2012 report, the gap between Black and White males has increased from 19 percentage points (school year 2009-2010) to an estimated 21 percentage points (2012-2013).
