This summary of a 1983 report by ASPIRA of New York on the state of minority secondary education in New York focuses on the dropout problem in New York City's public high schools. The summary also includes additional background information and makes clear ASPIRA's official position on the dropout question. The summary begins by presenting an overview of the findings of the report and background on ASPIRA's past research into the educational attainment of Puerto Rican and other Hispanic youth. This is followed by extensive excerpts from the report that focus specifically on the dropout situation in the New York public high schools. The conclusion to this summary outlines additional findings that emerged after extensive discussions between ASPIRA and the School Chancellor and ASPIRA and staff of the New York City Board of Education's Office of Student Information Services. Recommendations for action unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of ASPIRA of New York on July 26, 1983, and transmitted to the Chancellor are included in the final section. (KH)
