Ohio's dropout numbers jump at higher rate

Ohio's dropout rate increased between 2002 and 2009 at a higher rate than all other states except Illinois.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Ohio's dropout rate jumped from 3.1 percent to 4.2 percent in 2008-09.

Ohio's dropout numbers for 2009 are just slightly higher than the national average.

States aren't required to have comprehensive policies to cut their dropout rates.

Ohio is among the majority of states that don't have such policies.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich said in his State of the State speech this year that high dropout numbers in Ohio's big city schools are a real problem.

He wants to combat those statistics by holding students back if they can't pass reading tests by the end of third grade.
