Report Touts Cobb’s Graduation Rate For Black Males

The Schott Foundation’s recently released report on graduation rates for black males cites the Cobb County School District for its relatively strong results in this demographic. The Schott Foundation’s aim is to reduce the achievement gap between white male and black male students. Cobb County’s graduation rate for black males ranked second among school districts in Georgia, and eighth among large school districts nationwide.

(Note: The Schott Foundation’s graduation rate data does not count GEDs as a legitimate diploma, which is why the graduation rate listed for Cobb County is significantly lower than what is listed in the Georgia Department of Education Report Card)
