Grove, Jeffrey – Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), 2014
Over the past decade, SREB state policy-makers have focused on actions to reduce dropout rates and increase high school graduation rates.

Olsen, Linda S. – Baltimore Education Research Consortium, 2014
This brief examines absences in September and students' attendance over the rest of the year. Attendance should be addressed before it becomes problematic.

Sekiya, Takeshi – Education 3-13, 2014
The Reconstructed Cohort Method is often used to examine the status of national education. However, this method does not account for individual details and we know little about the status of school enrolments by tracking individual students from entrance until dropout or graduation. This study employs the True Cohort Method to analyse data for…

Archambault, Leanna; Kennedy, Kathryn; Bender, Stacy – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2013
