Pupil Mobility in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools During the 1968-69 School Year.
Metz, A. Stafford
This report provides 1968-69 baseline data regarding the extent to which pupils change schools (within or between school districts) during the school year. The report begins by establishing the national magnitude of pupil mobility among public schools. Data show (1) the total number of pupil moves, (2) the moves of elementary and secondary pupils, and (3) the moves of pupils in elementary and secondary schools in the nation's 130 largest cities (cities of 100,000 or more population in the 1960 Census) and those outside of these cities. The data come from a national survey conducted in May 1969 and composed of a representative sample of approximately 700 elementary and secondary schools. (Author)
