Dual credit and career/tech help raise graduation rates

New data from the Minnesota Department of Education shows a side-by-side comparison of high school graduation rates for various student groups across Minnesota.  The chart below shows 4-year high school graduation rates overall for students, for those who took 2-3 career and technical courses, and those who took at least 1 concurrent enrollment or PSEO course.

Taking at least one concurrent enrollment or PSEO course can help boost graduation rates by as much as 39 points (American Indian grad rate from boosted 49% overall to 88%)
