New report shows disparity for young women in local districts
A new report titled "Status of Girls in Florida: Educational Attainment and Disparities by County" is shedding light on the well-being of young girls in Florida.
The report is broken down by counties in Florida, with parts of it focusing on Florida public high school drop out rates and economically disadvantaged girls enrolled in Florida public schools.
The study mentions two local counties where region is a major factor, saying in part, "Some Florida districts (Columbia, Desoto, Gadsden, Hamilton, Highlands, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Okeechobee, Taylor) have a lower proportion of girls graduating than the Florida average. All of these are rural communities."
