The tabulated data used in this study were selected from the files of the superintendent of LaRue County schools.

The teacher's register of attendance for Kentucky schools from 1947 to 1951 were used to determine the eighth grade graduates of that period. Other data were furnished by the high school principals concerning the failures, promotions, and eliminations in their schools.

The purpose of this thesis is to ascertain the reasons for eighth grade graduates not entering high school and the number of years the eighth grade graduates who entered high school remained in membership. The years considered are 1947 to 1951 inclusive.
