High School Graduation Rate

We want to move Kentucky’s graduation rate into the top 20 in the nation. We advocate for increased compulsory-attendance-age and alternative education programs and funding; the State Board of Education’s new, more rigorous high school graduation requirements; modifying KEES scholarship eligibility to take account of the new requirements; development of strategies to encourage greater high school achievement by students who are not college-bound; and continued pursuit of the other recommendations of the Prichard Committee’s High Achieving High Schools report.
