We have a couple more posts that may come in later in the afternoon for BlueNC Women on Wednesday. lcloud has been working on a post, but was surprised with an opportunity I'm sure she'll share at the appropriate time and may choose to hold her post. Trust me, you'll understand when you hear about it. Also, NCDem Amy has captured that nasty virus that's going around and is doing her best to finalize her post.
I hadn't planned to put anything on the front page, but thought everyone would be interested in the data out on North Carolina's high school graduation rates. From the News & Observer:
The results showed noticeable gaps in the graduation rate among racial, ethnic and economic groups. While 73.6 percent of white students graduated, the rate dropped to 60 percent for blacks, 55.3 percent for low-income students and 51.8 percent for Hispanics.
There was also a gap among the sexes, with 72.4 percent of female students graduating, compared with 63.9 percent of males.
