New figures released by state education officials show only two in every three high school students in Oregon earns a diploma in four years. The on-time graduation rate for the class of 2011 was 67%, compared to 66% for the two previous classes. Governor John Kitzhaber calls the 67% on-time graduation rate "unacceptable." The Redmond School District responded to the report explaining that they received some positive news and saw a decrease in their drop-out rate. The report shows more than 11,000 students in Oregon's high school class of 2011 dropped out.
