Dropouts, suspensions, and expulsions decrease; school crime up

From a NC Department of Public Instruction press release:
The number of students who dropped out of school in 2009-10 was at a record low and the number of suspensions and expulsions also decreased. At the same time, school crime and violence was up, according to the 2009-10 Consolidated Report today presented to the State Board of Education.The economy/job market is certainly a major reason why the dropout rate hit the basement.
