Students could show signs of dropping out as early as first grade

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Montgomery County schools are trying to identify students who are not likely to graduate high school.

A new study from the school system shows students could show signs of becoming dropouts as early as the first-grade.

It found that students were five-times as likely to drop out if they were suspended once in first grade.

The Washington Post is reporting that officials hope to use the study as a road-map to lower drop-out rates and improve academic achievement.
