The nation's high school students are earning more college credits on their path to graduation, but steady improvements in grade-point average have slowed in recent years, according to a major new survey from the National Center for Education Statistics.
"Schools find it hard to justify [offering such classes], especially when cuts have to be made," Mr. Kranendonk said Wednesday.
