An increasing number of students with disabilities across the nation are graduating high school, according to new federal figures, but the odds of receiving a diploma vary considerably by state.
The high school graduation rate for those with disabilities rose to 68.2% for the 2018–2019 school year. That’s up from 67.1% the year prior.
The data comes from a report issued recently by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics and reflects the number of students who graduated within four years with a regular high school diploma.
