Unfulfilled Promise: The Dimensions and Characteristics of Philadelphia's Dropout Crisis, 2000-2005 - Using a unique set of data obtained from the Kids Integrated Data System, this report addresses three central sets of questions: (1) How many students in 6th-12th grades drop out of Philadelphia’s public schools in a single year and what are the key characteristics of these students? (2) What percentage of 9th graders graduates within a given set of years and what are the trends of these students and among various student groups? and (3) Which student characteristics can identify students as being at high risk of dropping out of high school? (Ruth Curran Neil and Robert Balfanz, Center for Social Organization of Schools, 2007)...
