The U.S. Department of Education has released new numbers that show that the graduation rate for those with disabilities has risen for the third year in a row. As reported from Disability Scoop the new number indicates that 63.1 percent of high school students with disabilities in the United States in the 2013-2014 school year graduated.

U.S Secretary of Educate Arne Duncan said on the increase, “The hard work of teachers, administrators, students and their families has made these gains possible and as a result many more students will have a better chance of going to college.”

With college being a possibility for more students with disabilities, we hope you will consider making an end of the year tax-deductible donation to KFM Making a Difference, a non-profit organization that’s given scholarships to 20 students with autism for college in the past 4 years. With your support, we are helping more of these students go to college everyday. Help make a difference for our community today here.
