Dropped Out 2021

It’s Spring! In Richmond, the daffodills are blooming and the 2020-2021 Superintendent’s Annual Report is sprouting data.

The Report has the dropout and Fall enrollment data by division.  Juxtaposing those, we can calculate the division percentages of dropouts.

Richmond with 1091 504 dropouts, 1.85% of the Fall enrollment, is the gold bar.  The red bars are the peer cities, from the left Hampton, Newport News, and Norfolk. The blue bar is the State total. (Oops! the 1091 is a total of totals. The correct Richmond number is 504. The percentage is correct, 1.85.  H/t to a reader of Carol’s repost.)

The yellow bar at 0.86% is Lynchburg, with a hat-tip to a reader (the reader?). The two empty slots at the bottom are Bath and Highland, both with zero dropouts.

Here are the data:
