    although i hate calling it news when it seems to be a rather expected result:

    Utah ranks in bottom half of country for high school grad rate

    "We’re disappointed we’re not ranking higher as compared to other states, and we’re definitely going to continue to be focused on it and working to improve it," said Judy Park, state associate superintendent, noting that she expects to see improvement when new graduation data is released for Utah.

    She said the low minority rankings are likely a reflection of Utah’s changing demographics and the need to improve in that area. She also said she believes there’s a correlation between the rankings and Utah’s lowest-in-the-nation per pupil spending.

    "I think it just shows that that’s an issue," Park said of per pupil spending. "When there’s not adequate funding put into education, it’s going to be reflected in how we compare to other states."
