It seems to mean little since students who have failed classes and students who have missed up to 100 days in one year are allowed to graduate as well. What is the point in such cases? Graduation does not mean education has occurred. It means little

Extremely high importance. By the time a kid is in High School they care more about peer acceptance then parental approval (sometimes). I don't want to chance this kind of influence - I rather they talk about "which school" than "if school"

It is a no-brainer. However, do your research carefully. In SC, for examle, the state often conflicts with its own policies and data colletion when reporting this data. The people in the community will know!

I have a disabled child in high school. He struggles greatly academically due to a stroke he suffered. He is one of MANY disabled there. What can we do to help them to succeed through a failed school system across the US?

I believe that graduation rates reflect on the ability of the school to engage the child and thus also gives insight into the effectiveness of the teachers.

I am trying to get a special education child thru High School and hoping he will be able to pass the HS graduation to receive a regular diploma. It is not easy because special ed kids have many problems that school don't address so it doesn't matter

It's crucial to a child's success. Our schools have been failing for years and nothing has been done. Parents and officials need to come together and demand quality education for all children.
