NCES 2008-053
September 2008

Selected Findings

Although data for both 2002 and 2003 are presented in the tables for this report, the text focuses on the 2003 dropout and completion results. For the most part, the findings for 2003 are consistent with results observed in 2002. When this is not the case, differences between the 2002 and 2003 results are noted.
