Susan Arbetter invited me onto the Capitol Pressroom today to talk about the recent decline in Buffalo's high school graduation rates.
Some of the topics we touched on: how graduation rates in district schools compare to local charter schools; why the district's graduation rate dropped for the Class of 2010; the parent trigger bill; and the dip in graduation rates for Asian students.
You can access the full audio of the show at http://thecapitolpressroom.org/the-capitol-pressroom-for-june-16-2011. The Buffalo portion of the audio starts around 13 minutes, 30 seconds.
