Texas Public School Enrollment & Graduation Rate History

From 2006 through 2010 Texas public schools made tremendous progress in the major dropout rate measurements.  That is demonstrated on the following two charts that can be enlarged and studied in detail.

The chart below presents over a decade of Texas graduation rate history.  As is clear in the chart below, these past 4 years have set new records for progress in Texas. The chart above has been left blank for the years through 2016. It is predicted that the over 5 billion dollars in education cuts inflicted by the Texas Legislature the spring of 2011 will leave their mark on these measurements.  Graduation rates may suffer unless we can somehow convince our students how critical their success in school is for their own futures, no matter what the state budget is!
