It looks like New Mexico is not making the grade.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, New Mexico has one of the worst four-year high school graduation rates in the nation.
The Las Cruces Sun News reports that new federal preliminary numbers from 2010 to 2011 show that New Mexico also falls at the bottom of the pack when analyzing rates across nearly every demographic.
According to the study, Nevada had the lowest graduation rate, with 62 percent graduation, just ahead of New Mexico’s 63 percent rate.
