The 20 colleges with the largest populations of D.C. Tuition Assistance grant (DCTAG) recipients have a combined graduation rate of 39 percent for those students, according to program data.
Is that a good statistic, or a bad one? On the one hand, it’s low. On the other hand, the data come from a college-preparatory operation that has dramatically increased the share of students from D.C. public schools who enroll in college at all.
