Lillard, Dean R.; DeCicca, Philip P.
Economics of Education Review, v20 n5 p459-73 Oct 2001
Investigates whether state course graduation requirements affect high-school dropout decisions, using aggregate data on dropout rates, individual data from two time periods, and aggregate data on high-school completion rates over 15 years. Results strongly suggest that state-mandated minimum course requirements cause students to drop out. (Contains 25 references.) (MLH)
