State department data on Nevada 12th graders in schools with high versus low dropout rates showed differences in school-to-career (STC) experiences. Five significant variables were unpaid school-year or summer internshps, service learning, volunteering, and other workplace experience. High unemployment in the state may have diminished some of STC's impact on dropout. (JOW)
