Toward an Accurate Description of the Student Dropout Program.
McNamara, James F.; McNamara, Maryanne
International Journal of Educational Reform, v3 n4 p500-03 Oct 1994
Solving the school dropout problem requires accurate data about the actual rates and counts for all student groups residing in the community. This article discusses ways to improve demographic accounting accuracy. Reporting only dropout rates diverts attention from dropout counts and increases the likelihood of making incorrect demographic inferences and unwarranted judgments about certain groups. (MLH)
