A third of Oregon’s HS students do not graduate on time. Betsy Hammond of the Oregonian has the latest data:
Oregon high schools’ on-time graduation rate remained mired at 68 percent for the class of 2012, the same as the year before, when Oregon ranked fourth worst in the nation.
Dropping out of HS leads to a pretty grim life. You might think that as a college professor you can’t do much to increase HS graduation rates. You’d be surprised – UO has many effective programs where faculty volunteers can and do make a difference. 1/31/2013.
