The latest look into Wisconsin schools shows some of the impact of the coronavirus.
The Wisconsin Policy Forum released a report yesterday that says enrollment is way down in the state, but graduation rates are up. The numbers come from both the end of the last school year and the beginning of this year. The Policy Forum says 25-thousand fewer kids are enrolled in Wisconsin schools, most of them are young kids who didn’t report to closed-down kindergarten classes.
While graduation rates jumped for most students, the report does say graduation rates for Black students in Wisconsin fell a bit.
