High school education in America may be deeply flawed, but at least more people than ever are getting through it.

According to U.S. News & World Report, the White House released new data this October announcing historically high school graduation rates:

"'America's high school graduation rate has reached a new record high of just over 83 percent,' said Education Secretary John King in a call Monday morning with reporters. 'The graduation rate isn't simply a number: it represents real students in real cities, towns and communities who are better prepared for success.'"
