PolitiFact rates Rudy Moise's dropout claim

Rudy Moise, a Democrat running for Congress in South Florida against U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, says his district "is going in the wrong direction."

He cites some troubling statistics on his campaign website:

"We're No. 2 in crime in the state. Unemployment is at 17 percent amongst minorities in my district. And we are losing our future with a staggering high school drop-out rate of almost 61 percent."

The figure that caught our eye was the double-digit dropout rate. PolitiFact explains what Moise was citing and the state's figures on the dropout rate.
