Recommended Reading: Grad Nation 2015 report

Visit this link to read the "2015 Building a Grad Nation Report: PROGRESS AND CHALLENGE IN ENDING THE HIGH SCHOOL DROPOUT EPIDEMIC"
This report is released annually, by the Alliance for Excellent Education, America’s Promise Alliance, Civic Enterprises, and the Everyone Graduates Center at Johns Hopkins University. It shows detailed progress toward the GradNation goal of a national on-time graduation rate of 90 percent by 2020.

On the home page you can click into subsections titled "Explore this Report". Look at some of the "drivers" causing gains, or lack of gains, in graduation rates, like poverty, big cities, and big states.

Download the report and use this as research and recommended reading in groups who are focused on closing the opportunity gaps in Chicago and other cities and states.
