      NAS, NAE, IOM Participate in Festival on National Mall
      Approximately 500,000 people gathered in Washington, D.C., for the first USA Science and Engineering Festival and Expo, whose mission is to stimulate young people's interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. Families crowded into the Academies' tent "Because Dreams Need Doing" to experience 3-D light drawing, virtual brain surgery, a "distracted driver" simulator, contests, hands-on games, and fascinating talks by Nobel Prize winners John Mather and Peter Agre along with many other speakers.

        Getting More Accurate Dropout and Graduation Rates
        A new joint report from the National Research Council and theNational Academy of Education offers guidance on measuring high school dropout and graduation rates -- a key and sometimes controversial indicator of a school system's effectiveness. The most accurate rates are those that track students over the entire course of their schooling, the report says. It adds that accountability policies should require schools and districts to set and meet progress goals for improving their graduation rates.
