BRASH, FRED B.
A STUDY WAS MADE OF DROPOUTS FROM DAYSCHOOL AND THEIR REASONS FOR ATTENDING FRESNO ADULT SCHOOL AS PART-TIME EVENING STUDENTS. A CHECKLIST TYPE QUESTIONNAIRE, BASED ON MILDRED PARTEN'S "SURVEYS, POLLS, AND SAMPLES," WAS COMPLETED BY 258 MEN AND 427 WOMEN ENROLLED IN HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA OR ELEMENTARY CERTIFICATE CLASSES. AMONG REASONS FOR DISCONTINUING DAY SCHOOL CLASSES WERE--TO BE MARRIED, TO HELP SUPPORT FAMILIES, OR TO JOIN THE ARMED FORCES. REASONS FOR ATTENDING EVENING CLASSES INCLUDED--DESIRE TO COMPLETE HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA REQUIREMENTS, JOB PROMOTION, AND TO OBTAIN ADDITIONAL FORMAL EDUCATION. MOST STUDENTS WERE BETWEEN 30 AND 35, MARRIED, AND HAD WITHDRAWN FROM DAY SCHOOL IN THE TENTH GRADE. (OTHER INFORMATION IS INCLUDED ON STUDENT INCOME, EDUCATIONAL GOALS, OCCUPATIONS, AND PUBLIC ASSISTANCE.) A FOLLOWUP STUDY AFTER FIVE AND TEN YEARS IS RECOMMENDED.
