Chapter 4: Student Behaviors and Persistence
This chapter looks at measures of student behavior and persistence. The indicators examine the rates of retention, suspension, and expulsion, as well as high school status dropout rates and completion rates. In addition, another indicator provides information on safety at school, such as how often students reported being threatened or injured with a weapon on school property or how often they had been offered illegal drugs.
