As we near the end of the school year, there’s one group of Shelby County students who are graduating at a higher rate than others.

And among girls who are economically disadvantaged, black girls graduate at rates about 5 percent higher than under-resourced white peers. Live at 9 discussed this report with Chalkbeat Tennessee reporter Samantha West and Jaron Carson, the Chief Academic Officer for MSCS.
