UCSB Education Professor Russell W. Rumberger recently published a new book: “Dropping Out: Why Students Drop Out of High School and What Can Be Done About It.” The book examines the problem of dropouts, indentifying the most successful programs at keeping kids in school, and suggesting evidence-based changes in public education, necessary for significant improvements in graduation rates.
