Overall graduation rates are up slightly, as are those for African-American and Hispanic students

New Jersey’s graduation rate keeps inching up — at least for the time being.

The Christie administration yesterday released its annual report on the latest high school graduating class and said that 88.6 percent of the Class of 2014 graduated within four years, up a percentage point from the Class of 2013 and two points from 2012.

It was good news for a state that is already at or near the top nationwide in its graduation rate, depending on how it is counted.
