High school dropout rates in South Carolina: Ranking every school and district

Sandy Addis, director of the National Dropout Prevention Center, a national nonprofit organization that provides research and guidance on the issue, said a more accurate measure on the dropout issue used by educators is the high school graduation rate.

“It’s a measure of high school completion,” he said. “But it’s not totally a high school issue.”Some students begin to disengage from education even in elementary school, he said, and others “check out” in middle school though¬†students cannot leave education until they are in high school.
