The American Indian High School Dropout: The Magnitude of the Problem.
Selinger, Alphonse D.
The magnitude of the dropout problem among Indians was illustrated by a study which followed students registered in grade 8 as of November 1962 through June 1967. Statistics were gathered by area, state, type of school, tribal group, and majority-minority position of Indian students in the 6-state area of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, and North Dakota. Related research dealing with Indian dropouts was used as a framework for the data and as a basis for comparison. No attempt was made to interpret the findings of the study since the primary aim was to provide a base for future research into to extent of the problem of American Indian high school dropouts. (DA)
