Document Number: 2818Understanding Dropouts: Statistics, Strategies and High-Stakes Testing - Dropping out is not an isolated event, but a gradual process that begins long before a student actually leaves school, according to this report from the National Academies' Center for Education. The report says that inadequate data on key questions are preventing educators from identifying students at risk of school failure early, when intervention could make a difference. The report can be purchased for $18 from the National Academy Press on the web or by phone: 888.624.8373. (Alexandra Beatty, Ulric Neisser, William T. Trent and Jay P.
