By: John M. Bridgeland, John J. DiIulio, Jr. and Robert Balfanz


In a follow-up to The Silent Epidemic: Perspectives of High School Dropouts (,  a report on the dropout crisis in American public education, Civic Enterprises has created a new report that includes the views of teachers and administrators, perspectives missing from its first report.
