WHY CAPABLE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS DO NOT CONTINUE THEIR SCHOOLING.
JUNG, CHRISTIAN W.; WRIGHT, W.W.
STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND HIGH SCHOOL OFFICIALS WERE INTERVIEWED IN AN EFFORT TO DETERMINE THE REASONS WHY CERTAIN YOUTHS WHO RANKED IN THE UPPER 10 PERCENT OF THE 1965 GRADUATING CLASSES OF INDIANA HIGH SCHOOLS DID NOT CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION. FOUR QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO SCHOOL PRINCIPALS, OFFICIALS, PARENTS, AND STUDENTS. AREAS COVERED WERE SEX, FAMILY INCOME, ENVIRONMENT, AND INTEREST IN HIGHER EDUCATION. THE CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM THE ANALYSIS OF THE DATA RECEIVED INCLUDED FINANCIAL BURDEN, DISTANT COLLEGE LOCATIONS, AND PARENTAL DISINTEREST AS PRIMARY REASONS FOR FAILURE TO CONTINUE SCHOOLING. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MORE GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL, BETTER INFORMATION ABOUT AVAILABILITY OF SCHOLARSHIPS AND OTHER FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, AND MORE CONFERENCES WITH PARENTS, SCHOOL OFFICIALS, AND STUDENTS TO ENCOURAGE HIGHER EDUCATION WERE SUGGESTED.
