The Institute for Research and Reform in Education (IRRE) has been working in the Detroit area for five years with multiple partners committed to improving high school graduation rates. In our study of graduation rates and student academic outcomes, we analyzed school performance data from 2010 to 2015 representing over 90,000 K-12 students and survey data from approximately 32,500 4th -12th grade students from 2013 to 2015.
