High School Dropout Rates among Minority Students in a Northern California Suburban Area
Chapman, Alexander
Online Submission
This study which has much of its base in the Education, Excellence & Equity (E3) program is about the dropout rates among minority students within a certain county in Northern California. Why are minority students dropping out at higher rates than their white counterparts? The research hypothesis is that the dropout rate is higher among minority students because of less economic stability, less parental involvement in school, and disengagement in class due to instructional material that is not culturally relevant. This research also addresses what schools and teachers can do to help keep minority students engaged in school. The goal of the study is to try to find ways to help close the achievement gap among students within this focus district. Appended to this document are High School Graduation Statistics Score Sheets.
