Many students 'stop out' of high school, studies find
from Education Week
For many students, dropping out of high school isn't the end of the line but a "stop out" along the path to a diploma, new federal and state data suggest. Of the students who entered high school in 2009, fewer than 3 percent were no longer in school when researchers from the National Center for Education Statistics' High School Longitudinal Study checked in 2012. But nearly 7 percent of the 2009 freshmen had "stopped out" — left school for four weeks or more at some point in grades 9-11, only to have returned by 2012.
