A recent report published by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) updates a series of NCES reports on high school dropout and completion rates that began back in 1988. Included in this report are both national and regional population estimates for the percentage of students who dropped out of high school between the years 2008 and 2009, the percentage of young people who were dropouts in 2009, and the percentage of young people who were not in high school and had some form of high school credential in 2009.
The full report can be found at the NCES website here.
We came across an interesting new report from the National Center for Education Statistics which provides national estimates about dropout prevention services and programs in public school districts.
The estimates are based on a district survey that outlines dropout prevention services and programs offered by the district or by any of the schools in the district during the 2010–11 school year.
The report can be found here.
