Reading of the day on graduation rates

Strongly recommended (if belatedly found!): Charles Hirschman, Nikolas Pharris-Ciurej, and Joseph Willhoft, How Many Students Really Graduate from High School? The Process of High School Attrition. This working paper is a revision of a poster session I saw at the Population Association of America meeting in March, and it's very solidly done, including a clever way of estimating the true out-migration/out-transfer rate of students (i.e., sorting out who is really transferring versus dropping out).
