Charter Schools as a Response to Student Drop-Out Phenomena in the Regular Public Schools.
Supley, Michael L.
Extensive studies over a long period have shown that students have chosen to drop out of school for a variety of reasons. These studies range from a general look at student dropouts to those that focus on specific groups. This paper reports primarily on "At Risk of Dropping Out" data derived from the Texas Education Agency Reports. Selected agency tables from these reports are reproduced in the appendices. The Texas Education Agency data presented in appendices 2 through 9 give a clear indication of the role of the charter-school movement as one response to the "at risk/drop out" student. It does appear that charter schools do serve as a dropout intervention to some degree. An appendix listing "Open-Enrollment Charter Schools Fall 1998 Data Collection" is provided. (Contains 12 references and a 9-page appendix providing statistics from the Texas Education Agency.) (DFR)
