I-11e: Distribution of High School Graduate LOTE* Credit-Earning among Languages, 2009 Graduation Class

* “LOTE” stands for languages other than English. Arabic was excluded from the calculations on which this indicator is based because a reliable estimate of the share of graduates who had earned credit in this language could not be obtained. Percentages do not add to 100% due to rounding.

Some students earned credit for more than one language, and thus the units depicted in the graph are not high school graduates but rather instances of earned credit in a given language among those graduates.
