This report is about this one-third of our nation who do not complete high school, about the fact that this situation has gotten worse in most states during the last decade, and about the factors in studentsâ€™ lives that are closely associated with dropping out of school. The report identifies several approaches to increasing student retention that evaluations have shown to have positive results.
Paul Barton describes the steadily declining opportunities for dropouts after they leave school â€“ declining public investment in â€śsecond-chanceâ€·0i0k0i0n0d0x programs and declining earnings in the job market. And he describes the kinds of econd-chance efforts that have been shown to be effective
