The schools in Palm Beach County, Florida have low graduation rates, particularly among minority students.  The ACLU has filed a lawsuit challenging the adequacy of the school system on behalf of about a dozen Palm Beach County students and their parents arguing that the low graduation rate violates the state constitution which provides:

The education of children is a fundamental value of the people of the State of Florida. It is, therefore, a paramount duty of the state to make adequate provision for the education of all children residing within its borders. Adequate provision shall be made by law for a uniform, efficient, safe, secure, and high quality system of free public schools that allows students to obtain a high quality education

The record in the lawsuit indicates that the official overall on-time high school graduation rate for Palm Beach County is 71.8%, although the plaintiffs argue that the actual rate is closer to 60%.  The 71.8% rate is lower than the state average, but higher than 5 of the 6 largest urban school districts in the state.  The graduation rate in Palm Beach County, however, varies by race.  The rate for white students is 80% while the rate for black students is about 55% and the rate for Hispanic students is about 64%.  Do you think the ACLU lawsuit will succeed?
