New Jersey's public high school graduation rate continues to improve, rising one percentage point to 87.5 percent in 2013, according to data released Wednesday by the New Jersey Department of Education. The rate has increased four percentage points since the state began using a new formula in 2011 that requires districts to more accurately track each student from the time they enter as a freshman until they graduate. Adjustments are also made for students who transfer in or out during that four years.
