U.S. High School Dropout Rate
Number of 'dropout factory' high schools in the U.S. drops, report says:
Between 2009 and 2010, the number of "dropout factories" -- the term used in the report for those high schools that graduate 60% or less of the number of freshmen who reported for class four years earlier -- dropped from 1,634 to 1,550, continuing a trend that has accellerated in recent years, the report says.
...'accellerated'?!? Misspelling in an article touting an improvement in education. How ironic!
