The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of increased high school graduation requirements on the student population of one California school district. An increase in graduation requirements was imposed by state legislation and the local school board in response to a nationwide call to improve America's education which dominated educational attention during the early 1980's. The class entering Stockton high schools as ninth graders in 1982 was the last class required to meet the old requirements and the class entering in 1983 was the first class required to meet the increased standards.
