(UNDATED) - Indiana's 2012-2013 graduation rate held virtually steady compared to the year before, according to data released by the Department of Education.

IDOE said the overall graduation rate was 88.6 percent across the state, nearly matching the previous school year's rate of 88.7 percent. The non-waiver graduation rose to 81.72 percent, up from 80.46 percent during the previous year.
