Leaving Boys Behind: Public High School Graduation Rates (2006)

This report finds that females graduate from high school at a higher rate than their male classmates in every racial subgroup. It also examines graduation rates for the 100 largest school districts in the United States and finds that low graduation rates are a particular problem in the nation’s most populated school districts. “None of the nation’s ten largest school systems, which over 8% of U.S. public school children attend, graduates more than 60% of its students,” it reads.
