High School Graduation Rate Reaches Historic High of 60 %
 
Mayor Bloomberg announces that the four-year high school graduation rate in New York City has reached 60%, the highest level since the City began calculating the rate in 1986 and an 18% increase since the Mayor assumed control of the public schools in 2002.  The gains mirrored the increases reported last month by the New York State Education Department, which, using a different methodology, put the City’s rate at 50%, a rise of 14% since 2004, when the State began reporting comprehensive graduation rates.
