Is this another one you just pulled out of the air?
I was wondering the same thing This is what I found:

State figures released Friday suggest Florida's high school graduation rate has jumped 3 percentage points to a record 76.3 percent in 2009. That's a jump despite the fact that Florida stopped counting GED recipients in the calculation.

Yes, those are the figures I saw. 76.3 grad rate in 09. Thats pretty darn good if you ask me. However, I have noticed a poster on this forum, hits many different areas of the forum, but always posts these ridiculous statistics. I see a few posters have advised the poster that their information was wrong and questioned it. The poster never responds though. Just posts more mis information again and again.
