US students set sights on the skies

Only one in three students who apply to an aviation Seattle high school is successful.

    There are more students graduating from American high schools than at any time in the last 40 years.

    It is reported that roughly 75 percent received their diplomas.

    One school in Seattle is doing better than that by launching careers in space as well as the sky.

    Raisbeck Aviation High School allows teenagers to take courses in aviation, space and engineering from an early age.

    Al Jazeera's Allen Schauffler reports from Seattle.
