Tassels on the Cheap.
Chaplin, Duncan
Education Next, v2 n3 p24-29 Fall 2002
Asserts that high school graduation rates have fallen since 1969, but decline is masked by increase in General Educational Development (GED) certificates. Provides two explanations for fallen graduation rates and the degree ratio: States have made it easier for students to obtain GED certificates; some students are unable to pass state-mandated, high-stakes exit exams for high school diplomas.
