In Brief: Dropping out of school

Dongshu Ou ()

CentrePiece - The Magazine for Economic Performance from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE

Abstract: Dongshu Ou assesses the differences between barely passing and barely failing US high school exit exams. What is the difference between barely passing and barely failing an exam? Technically, just mere points. But for American school children taking high school exit exams (which pupils in some states need to pass to get a regular high school diploma), it can mean the difference between graduating and dropping out, even when there are opportunities to retake the test.These are the findings of a study by Dongshu Ou.
