Why High School Graduation Rates Aren’t the Whole Story

Everyone with an interest in looking at secondary education with an equity and inclusion lens is invited to join CRHESI coordinator James Shelley in conversation with Matt Ross (founder of the London Youth Advisory Council) at the London Public Library on Monday, February 13, at 7:00 p.m.

Matt Ross (@mattasross) was data lead on a 2016 research project to understand London’s high school graduation rates. He joins us to talk about the complexity and nuance of understanding graduation rates, and what the research has taught him about the challenges and opportunities facing students today. The research suggests that using graduation rates as a sole parameter for educational success fails to capture important dimensions of why the system doesn’t work for some students.
