NCLB High School Graduation Rate: Non-Regulatory Guidance (Dec. 2008)

On October 29, 2008, the Department published final regulations amending the existing regulations implementing Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). The amendments included changes to 34 C.F.R. §200.19, regarding the "other academic indicators" that States use in defining "adequate yearly progress" (AYP). This non-regulatory guidance provides States, LEAs, and schools with information about how to implement the provisions in 34 C.F.R. §200.19(b). Section A of this guidance defines the four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate, the extended-year adjusted cohort graduation rate, and the transitional graduation rates that are allowable until States must implement the four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate. Section B guides States in setting a single graduation rate goal and annual graduation rate targets. Section C outlines requirements for reporting graduation rate. Section D answers questions about how States include the four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate and any extended-year adjusted cohort graduation rate in AYP determinations, including the use of disaggregated rates for student subgroups. Section E provides information about how a State must revise its Consolidated State Application Accountability Workbook (Accountability Workbook) to include certain information and submit its revisions to the Department for technical assistance and peer review. Section F clarifies the timeline for implementing the new graduation rate provisions, as well as the process for how a State that cannot meet the deadlines outlined in the final regulations may request, from the Secretary, an extension of time to meet the requirements.

    Describing the Dimensions of the Current Labor Market Crisis in the U.S., Center for Labor Market Studies-1/19/2010

    Most national macroeconomic models project little to no net employment growth through the middle of next year. Overall unemployment, as even indicated by Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke, is likely to rise through the fall of the coming year, 2010. Joblessness and labor underutilization problems will worsen over this time period. The country must act now to help put America's youth and adults back to work in a cost effective and transparent manner.

    Dire Straits for Many American Workers: The Economic Case for New Job Creation Strategies in 2010 for the Nation?¢??s Teens and Young Adults (20-24), Center for Labor Market Studies - January 2010

    Dire Straits for Many American Workers: The Economic Case for New Job Creation Strategies in 2010 for the Nation's Teens and Young Adults (20-24), Center for Labor Market Studies, January 2010

    The nation's teen (16-19) and young adult (20-24 year old) job markets have continued to collapse during the past year, dropping all of these young groups' employment rates to new post- World War II lows. Over the October-November 2007 to November-December 2009 period, the number of employed teens in the U.S. declined by nearly 25% while the number of employed 20-24 year olds fell by nearly 11%. As noted in the bar graph on the cover page, the job loss in relative terms (-25%) among the nation's teens in the Great Recession is greater than it was for all workers (16+) in the Great Depression of the 1930's (1929-1933).3 The employment losses for young workers far exceeded those of all other age groups. Among older persons (55+), however, total employment at the end of this period was actually higher than it was prior to the beginning of the recession.
