A new federal study says Texas' four-year high school graduation rate climbed to 78.9 percent for the Class of 2010.

The National Center for Education Statistics released a report Tuesday that shows four-year graduation rates statewide rose from 73.1 percent in 2006-2007 to 78.9 percent in 2009-2010.
