LANSING, Mich. - A report from Education Week shows that many minority students, specifically black and Hispanic students, aren't graduating from high school, according to WLNS.

The report found that only one-third of Michigan's young black men graduated in 2005. The dropout problem isn't just about race, however, as about 20,000 Michigan students drop out of school annually, WLNS reported.
