What happened to the Class of ... 1998?
The other day I got an "Urgent Verification Needed" postcard from the Lowell High School Directory project. I pulled out my high school yearbook, and it got me thinking about an old mystery: what the hell happened to my class? I started freshman year in 1994 with a class of about 1,100, but by the time we reached graduation, there were fewer than 600 of us.
The L.A. Times looked at a similar highschool and figured out the depressing math (Back to Basics: Why Does High School Fail So Many?)
