Indiana Suffering From National Graduation Difficulties

Last updated on Thursday, June 22, 2006

(UNDATED) - A new report shows the state of Indiana has many of the same high school graduation problems as the country as a whole.

Education Week Magazine released a nationwide study called "diplomas count", breaking down graduation rates for each school district in all 50 states.

The report shows 49 of 50 states, including Indiana, over-report the number of kids graduating from high school.

The report says Indiana officials claim better than a 90 percent graduation rate across the state.
