NewsChannel 10

New Mexico - New Mexico's graduation rate improved slightly last year, but the state still ranks among the lowest in the country.

The New Mexico Public Education Department says the statewide graduation average was slightly more than 67%.

A report released by Education Week shows the state lost an average of 71 students per school day.

The New Mexico Education Secretary says the report makes it clear that the state needs education reform as soon as possible.
