Wayman, Jeffrey C.
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v9 n4 Feb 2001
Examined correlates of degree attainment (GED certificate or high school diploma) in high school dropouts of Mexican American or non-Latino white descent. Results for data from 519 dropouts indicate that 59.2% of dropouts return to obtain high school credentials, and that school capability, age at dropout, and socioeconomic status significantly predicted degree attainment.
