(AP) — High school graduation rates in Minnesota rose again last year, and the gap between white students and students of color continues to shrink, according to data released Monday by the Department of Education. Nearly 82 percent of all high school students graduated last year, up from about 81 percent in 2014. The education department said that means more students are graduating here than ever before, but that's there's still more work to be done.

And when the projector is not in use, the stand can be placed over the lens like a protective cover. On the back of the JmGO View is the power button along with ports for HDMI, USB 2. 0 (for data and devices), and the wall adapter for charging the 15,600-mAh capacity battery. Along with Bluetooth, the JmGO View also features Wi-Fi, Miracast, and Happycast (it's like Airplay) connectivity, which opens up so much potential for streaming content (e. g. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, YouTube, etc. And given the projector's Android-based operating system, you can access Google Play to download plenty of compatible apps, videos, and games. The level of noise generated by the JmGO View's internal fans in a silent room is about 35 db from a meter away. Powered by Android The JmGO View is powered by Android 4. 4. 4 with a custom UI, supported by 16 GB of internal storage. The projector presents an effective, clutter-free menu system that provides the important options you need: signal source (storage, HDMI), wireless.
