National Status Dropout Rate
Students Aged 16-24 (October 1994)
"Status" rates measure the proportion of the total population who have not completed high school and are not enrolled at one point in time, regardless of when they dropped out.
Sources: NCES: Dropout rates in the U.S., 1993; Condition of Education, 1993; and Condition of Education, 1994 First, schools serving mostly Hispanic populations show a higher dropout rate than schools that are serving a more mixed or primarily white population. This is apparent in Figure 2 below. For example, Sunnyside Unified School District (its two high schools are Desert View and Sunnyside) is located in a primarily Hispanic region of the Tucson Metro area and both high schools in the district have higher dropout rates than schools in non-Hispanic areas such as Sabino High or Palo Verde High. Of 4,304 students at Sunnyside, 77 percent, or 3,335, are Hispanic.

      A questionnaire was mailed to 200 randomly selected Navajos who had attained at least a four year college degree; 107 questionnaires were returned. The questionnaire consisted of questions relating to family characteristics, educational background, socioeconomic status, language information and demographic data. The results indicate that most of the respondents had parents who were born on the reservation, spoke primarily Navajo, considered their families to be mainly traditional, and had income levels ranging from $1,000 - $10,000. Their own motivation and encouragement from family were given as the most important factors contributing to their high educational attainment.
      Elgin Badwound; William Tierney [pp. 9-15]

      This article demonstrates the need for research in organizational governance and decision making which takes into account the values of American Indian culture. The predominant model of organizational governance and decision making in higher education (rational) is analyzed within the context of tribally-controlled community colleges. The assumptions upon which the rational model is based conflict with the values that underlie the tribal college mission. We argue that the model provides an inadequate framework for predicting behavior in tribal colleges. As a result, an alternative organizational framework is proposed, and further avenues for investigation are discussed.

SMALL LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLS DECREASE ALASKA NATIVE DROP-OUT RATES Judith Kleinfeld, G. Williamson McDiarmid, and David Hagstrom The high drop-out rates of low income minority students has long been a major national concern. Drop-out rates are difficult to measure due to differences among various agencies and school districts in the definition of drop-out, problems in distinguishing students who have dropped out of school from those who have transferred to other educational programs, and problems in distinguishing students who have left school altogether from those who will re-enroll in a GED or some other program and eventually receive a high school diploma (Pallas, 1986; Hammack, 1986; Mann, 1986). Nonetheless, national estimates of drop-out rates from varying sources have come up with similar estimates. Among 18- and 19-year-old students, "slightly less than three-quarters have completed high school" (Pallas, 1986, p. 4). Drop-out rates were even higher among low income students and ethnic minority students. American Indian and Alaska Native students had higher drop-out rates than any other ethnic minority. According to data from the High School and Beyond study, drop-out of high school sophomores of American Indian and Alaska Native background was about 29 percent in comparison to drop-out rates of 18 percent among Hispanic students, 17 percent among Black students, and 12 percent among Caucasian students (Pallas, 1986).

By Sarah Garrecht Gassen
ARIZONA DAILY STAR PHOENIX - Arizona schools will have the benefit of the doubt when the state labels schools next month, but about 200 will be classified as "underperforming" under rules the State Board of Education adopted Monday. Being declared "underperforming" is the first step to being labeled a "failing" school and put under state intervention. State projections also show that no schools in Arizona will receive an "excelling" label, the highest ranking. The board approved the framework for how to evaluate schools under the new Arizona LEARNS legislation using four categories: excelling, improving, maintaining and underperforming. This is the first step in complying with the new federal No Child Left Behind legislation that sets down its own list of rules and benchmarks for school accountability. Arizona has federal approval to use the state system this year, but must start moving to the more stringent federal system beginning in 2003. Public announcement of which labels schools in Arizona have earned will be made Oct. 15. School districts will receive the data sooner in order to check for errors, said David Garcia, associate state superintendent of schools with the Department of Education.
