DROPOUT PATTERNS IN THE NEW HOPE PROJECT.
PEARCE, FRANK C.
OF 1,006 REFERRALS FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EMPLOYMENT, 29 PERCENT DROPPED BEFORE COMPLETION OF THIS ADULT TRAINING PROJECT. OF THESE, 6 PERCENT WENT TO WORK AND 11 PERCENT DROPPED FOR REASONS WHICH WERE UNAVOIDABLE. THE ACTUAL DROPOUT RATE WAS 12 PERCENT. OF THE DROPOUTS, 41.9 PERCENT GAVE REASONS WHICH WERE WITHIN THE CAPACITY OF THE PROGRAMS TO CORRECT, WHILE 21.4 PERCENT DROPPED FOR WORK PURPOSES. FINDINGS SHOW THAT TWO-THIRDS OF THE TOTAL DROPOUTS WERE STUDENTS WITH NO PREVOCATIONAL TRAINING, AND TABLES DETAIL PERCENTAGES WITHIN THE PREVOCATIONAL, TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL, BUSINESS, AND AGRICULTURE PROGRAMS FOR THE REST OF THE DROPOUTS. THE PREVOCATIONAL PROGRAM SHOWED THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT DECREASE IN DROPOUT RATE, DUE TO A CONCENTRATED EFFORT TO IMPROVE ATTENDANCE AND IDENTIFY PROBLEMS AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PROGRAM MODIFICATION ARE INCLUDED. (DE)
