The Indiana Department of Education released 2017 graduation rate data Friday.

The department reports the statewide graduation rate landed around 87 percent — two points lower than in 2016.

Seven percent of those graduates failed to pass end of course exams required to earn a diploma, and received a waiver from the state.

English-language learning (ELL) students had the lowest graduation rate: more than a third of ELL students in the state failed to earn a diploma. That graduation rate — 60 percent — was 15 points lower than in 2016.

The data included information on a total of nearly 82,000 Hoosier students.
