PhotographÂ was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated July 29, 1963 partially reads, "The dropout problem is viewed with alarm by local officials - but not because the rate is increasing, because it isn't. Their concern is based, rather, on the increasing requirements in business and industry for proper background... In fact, the statistical figure has become much brighter: the rate of students leaving high school before graduation in Los Angeles has decreased from 31.7 per cent in the 1960-61 school year, to 29.6 per cent last year." Students at a Valley high school don't look like dropouts, but who knows?
