This report presents comprehensive and detailed information on grades 7-12 dropout rates and on high school graduation rates in the Central Region. Dropout and graduation rates are presented for the region as a whole and for each state in the region, by gender, race/ethnicity, locale, and grade. The rates provide a comprehensive reference for state and local educators and policymakers on the student subgroups most at risk of not completing high school. The analyses conducted in this study yield dropout rates and high school graduation rates for the region as a whole, each state in the region, and subgroups of students in the region and in each state using the most recent data available when this study was conducted, that for the 2001/02 school year. The results tables in appendix C serve as a comprehensive reference for state and local educators and policymakers interested in dropout and high school graduation for student subgroups (such as gender and race/ethnicity) within their states and within specific settings, such as large cities or rural areas. (Contains 3 boxes, 6 figures, 80 tables, and 3 notes.)
