New figures were released today showing Oregon high schools failed to graduate one of every three students in 2011.

While the state's on-time graduation rate rose from 66 to 67 percent for the class of 2011.

Even more disturbing is the fact that more than 11,000 young people dropped out of school completely.

When asked about it, Governor John Kitzhaber called the 67 percent rate, "Unacceptable."
