Now students are only able to drop out if parents choose to home school the student, long-term illness, if the judicial system says the student does not have to attend school and if the student has to get a job to help support the family.
Would a teen also be statistically counted as a dropout if he or she dis-enrolled to enroll in a private school, move to another state, or move to another country?
Yes, the statistics apply labels only to count noses, but you think the number-crunchers would be able to include the sub-category ‘homeschool’ in their list of reasons why parents removed their children from school.
I guess if you’re not in public school, then, in the eyes of the writers, you’re Not.
