Description

LA Weekly reports on how an inner-city L.A. high school, Manual Arts, masked its dropout rate by keeping "ghost" students on its enrollment list. The fraud gave the school "a breather from chronic overcrowding" and allowed it to keep its funding. The problem is that the state of California "does not conform to widely accepted standards for counting dropouts honestly and accurately."
