This chapter proposes a decision support system applied to public schooling, especially for reducing dropout rates for minorities. That is relevant enough to enable understanding of ethical data mining in a strategic planning context. This understanding explains the importance of adequate different aspects related with Strategic Planning. The authors focus their analysis on a specific problem related with reducing dropout rates based on decision support systems under uncertainty. To this end, surveys are performed to gather information about this problem using Data Mining techniques to profile a number of behavioral patterns and choices that describe social behaviors. Ethical Data Mining is used for reasons of culture to improve the socio economic development. In addition, the chapter describes innovative models that capture salient variables of modernization, and how these variables give raise to intervening aspects that end up shaping behavioral patterns in ethical and social aspects. Finally, the chapter remarks and extends discussions of the authors’ approach and will provide general guidelines for future work in diverse application domains, including further analysis on how those public politics organize and operate.
