Lynn 2017 Annual Dropout Rates

During the 2016 - 2017 academic year, 1.8% of Massachusetts students statewide dropped out of school at some point during the year. Dropping out is defined by DESE standards is having left school and not being re-enrolled by October of the following school year. In Lynn, the percentage of LPS students who dropped out during the last school year was higher at 5.1%, an increase over the 2015 - 2016 school year.
Dropout rates at each of the high schools varied: Lynn English (5.7%), Lynn Classical (5.3%), Lynn Tech (1.3%), and Fecteau-Leary (12.5%).


These percentages are equivalent to the total numbers referenced below:


At the grade level, the percentage of students who dropped out varied with the highest proportion being at the 10th grade level in 2016 - 2017 and the lowest being at the 12th grade level.
When looking at the individual subgroups, one-fifth of Limited English Proficiency (LEP) students in the10th grade level during the 2016 - 2017 academic year dropped out. Students with disabilities reported the highest dropout rates for students in that subgroup at the 9th and 12th grade levels (approximately 10% for each of those grades).


There is also a disparity in Lynn between male and female students in terms of dropout rates with the majority of students who drop out being male.

At the district level, Phoenix Academy Public Charter School - Springfield reported the highest annual drop out rate at 54.4%. Lynn and Springfield both reported the 17th highest annual dropout rates in the state at 5.1% in 2016 - 2017.

Lynn Public School Grads Post An Impressive List of Post-Secondary Achievements

Despite their many accomplishments, there is an unfortunate and often unfair stereotype about students attending Lynn public schools. Most notably, there is a belief that most Lynn students are not destined to do much as a result of a variety of factors (poverty, parenting, poor academic preparation, etc.). I found the following commenton citydata.com in response to a person seeking advice about LPS:
Lynn schools are the worst on the North Shore, unless you want your child to end up in a gang or jail, I would stay away from them. Although I know someone who went to school there and ended up at Babson, but that's an exception.
Lynn schools do indeed post lower test scores than surrounding communities. Additionally, there is likely a higher percentage of discipline problems in Lynn as well as increased psychosocial stressors and lower resources among other challenges within the Lynn student body when compared to towns like Marblehead or Danvers. Still, there are a significant numbe…

Lynn Voter Turnout 2017

Yesterday in Lynn, residents turned out to vote for mayor, city council and school committee with challenger and current State Senator Thomas McGee overtaking incumbent mayor Judith Kennedy 64% to 35%. Voter turnout in the city this election cycle was lower than in previous mayoral races at just 28.16% (or 14,489 voters of the 52,722 Lynn residents who are registered to vote).


Turnout in Ward 1 was the highest at 45.7% and lowest in Ward 4 at 16.3%.

Poverty Matters: The Effects of Being Poor On Children

A recent national study revealed that 1 in 5 U.S. children lives in poverty which has largely been attributable to the recession and represents an increase of nearly 2.5 million children since 2000. Given the number and the scope of the negative effects associated with poverty, increasing poverty rates among U.S. children have the potential to inflict severe psychological, emotional and economic damage on the next generation of young people. This issue is particularly pertinent for me living in Lynn, MA, a city where nearly a quarter of children (under age 18) live below the poverty line; other cities in Massachusetts have as high as 42% of children living below the poverty line (Danzing & Bernier, 2008). In Chelsea, MA, 97.4% of children under age 18 live in a neighborhood 20% of more of population is living below the poverty line (Danzig & Bernier, 2008). Furthermore, the Massachusetts Citizens for Children found that on any given day 50,000 school aged children and youth as…
