Diplomas Count 2015 - Next Steps: Life After Special Education reports
The 2015 edition of Education Week’s Diplomas Count report, Next Steps: Life After Special Education, explores the experiences of students with disabilities, who are coming of age at a time when they, like all high school students, are increasingly expected to perform to high academic standards and to prepare for further education or training and a productive role in the workplace. This tenth installment of the annual report highlights the challenges and opportunities awaiting these students as they transition from the K-12 education system to a more independent adult life. The full report and interactive tools include customized reports for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia featuring the latest high school graduation rates for students as a whole and specific subgroups.
