An article in the Dec. 8, 2004, issue of Education Week (“Study: Foster Children Often Trail Their Peers in School”) should have said that a study by the University of Chicago showed that 15 percent of Chicago students in “out of home” care who dropped out of school did so before turning 16. By age 19, 64 percent had dropped out.

A version of this article appeared in the January 05, 2005 edition of Education Week
