According to the National Center for Education Statistics, on average only 84% of students graduate on time from high school in the United States.
Graduating can be a challenge for all students, however, the graduation rate tends to be lower for racial ethnic minority students, the drop out percentages are also higher. This leads to a cycle of poverty that can last a lifetime.
