SELECTED REPORTS AND STATISTICS ON SCHOOL DROPOUTS.
BAYLEY, MONICA; AND OTHERS
FOUR ARTICLES ARE PRESENTED. THE FIRST, "A RENEWED EFFORT TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF DROPOUT," BY MONICA BAYLEY, DISCUSSES PROGRAMS IN SEVERAL CITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THE FOUR IN NEW YORK ARE STEP, CO-OP PROGRAM, OPERATION RETURN, AND HIGHER HORIZONS. IMPROVEMENT OF THE SCHOOL PROGRAMS IS BEING UNDERTAKEN IN COLUMBUS, OHIO, CHICAGO, MIAMI, WASHINGTON, D.C., LOS ANGELES, ATLANTA, BOSTON, PITTSBURGH, PHILADELPHIA, AND DETROIT, AMONG OTHERS. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ADMINISTRATIONS ARE ALSO INCLUDED AS WELL AS WORK STUDY PROGRAMS. HYRUM M. SMITH AND LEONARD M. MILLER'S ARTICLE, "DOORS WERE OPENED," DISCUSSES HOW COMMUNITY RELATIONSHIPS WITH STUDENTS MAY ENCOURAGE THEM TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL. "THE SCHOLASTIC ABILITY OF SCHOOL DROPOUTS," BY O. RAY WARNER, SHOWS THROUGH RESEARCH THAT NO MATTER HOW VERSATILE THE CURRICULUM, HOW EFFECTIVE THE GUIDANCE SERVICES, OR HOW MANY SPECIAL PROGRAMS ARE DEVELOPED, IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE TO KEEP EVERY POTENTIAL DROPOUT IN SCHOOL. THE HOME, CHURCH, AND OTHER SOCIETAL INSTITUTIONS SHOULD ASSIST THE SCHOOL. THE FINAL ARTICLE, "ENROLLMENT, TEACHERS, AND SCHOOLHOUSING," BY CAROL JOY HOBSON AND SAMUEL SCHLOSS, HIGHLIGHTS--GROWTH OF POPULATION, PUPIL ENROLLMENTS, HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES, CLASSROOM TEACHERS, MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR STANDARD TEACHING CERTIFICATES, TEACHERS WITH SUBSTANDARD CREDENTIALS, LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS, CLASSROOMS COMPLETED, ABANDONED, OR SCHEDULED FOR COMPLETION, PUPILS ON CURTAILED SESSINS, AND CLASSROOM SHORTAGE.
