High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) First Follow-Up: A First Look at Fall 2009 Ninth-Graders in 2012 - In a country screaming for STEM expertise, we should all be bothered by the following numbers. This newly-released “First Look” from IES introduces new data from the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009—data collected in the spring of 2012 when most sample members were in their 11th-grade year. Of the students who were ninth-graders in 2009, most (93%) were in grade 11 in 2012. This publication reports that of those enrolled in high school in spring 2012, 18% reported taking no science at all and 11% of students reported no math course enrollment. (Steven J. Ingels and Ben Dalton, IES, October 2013)...
