The American Indian High School Dropout in the Southwest.
Owens, Charles S.; Bass, Willard P.
American Indian students who were enrolled in the eighth grade in the 1962-63 school year in a six-state area of the Southwest were studied through 1967 to determine the percentages of high school dropouts and graduates from public, private, and Bureau of Indian Affairs schools. Of the sample of 1217, dropout levels were not identified for 9 students. The overall dropout rate was 38.7 with no significant difference between sexes. Individual dropout rates were determined by sex for the 6 different states and for different Indian tribes having 25 or more students in the study. (JH)
