High school graduation rates up to 88% in Wisconsin

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - 88 percent of Wisconsin public high school seniors graduated last May -- about a half-percent more than the previous year.  

The state Department of Public Instruction released the numbers Thursday.  

Minorities have made gains over the past three years -- but their graduation rates still lag behind white seniors. The report said over 92 percent of white students graduated from high school in 2013 -- but only 74 percent of Hispanics earned their diplomas, as well as almost 65 percent of African-Americans.

Still, the black graduation rate was over four percent higher than in 2010, and about five percent more Hispanics received diplomas in that time period.
