California Dropout Research Project

The purpose of this project is to synthesize existing research and undertake new research to inform policymakers and the larger public about the nature of and potential solutions to the dropout problem in California. From December 1, 2006 to January 31, 2008 the project will produce a series of reports and policy briefs addressing four facets of the issue: (1) the measurement and incidence of dropping out; (2) the educational, social, and economic costs of dropouts for individuals and the state; (3) the short-term and long-term causes of dropping out; and (4) proven interventions. Drawing on this information, a policy committee composed of researchers, policymakers, and educators will then draft a state policy agenda to improve California's high school graduation rate.
