For the 300 or so freshmen who enter Brother Rice High School here in
Chicago every year, 92% stay all 4 years and graduate. 88% of those boys
graduate from college.

Subject: [CPF0000] No Child Left Behind
No Child Left Behind is a work in progress. The state has always kept
statistics, but they never were as readily available as they are now,
so in that regard, NCLB has value. Here is a site that ranks New York
schools by the percentage of high school students who actually
(Rochester, NY Democrat and Chronicle)
I attended school in Schenectady county, at what is now Schenectady
High. In 2005, 56.3% got their diploma. In 2006, 53.6% did. Whether
one can blame NCLB for the drop is not as important as the fact that
more than 40% of the students won't get a diploma. At Albany High,
the dropout rate is over 60%.
For a stunning contrast, look at Westchester County. Chappaqua, a
well-to-do place, has a 2.7% dropout rate. In Yonkers, a somewhat
less-well-to-do place it's 45%.
