Oklahoma Drop Out Rate Improves

KSCB News - January 22, 2013 8:14 am

A new study shows Oklahoma ranks 14th in the nation for lowest high school dropout rate at 2.4 percent during the 2009-2010 school year, well below the national average of 3.4 percent.

The report from the National Center for Education Statistics released was released Tuesday. It also shows Oklahoma’s dropout rate has continued to shrink since the 2005-2006 school year, when it was at 3.6 percent.

The study ranks the dropout rate for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It defines a dropout as a student who was enrolled at any time during the previous school year who wasn’t enrolled at the beginning of the current school year and hasn’t graduated.

New Hampshire had the lowest dropout rate at 1.2 percent. Arizona had the highest at 7.8 percent.
